Dandelions can be found almost anywhere on the earth, from pristine meadows to industrialized area’s – they even flourish on the side of the most heavily trafficked highways. Most adults don’t pay special attention to these flowers; they are generally seen as weeds. However, dandelions are historically prized for their medicinal properties, and who takes the time to look closely will notice the inimitable aesthetic of its parachute ball. The Dandelight is as simple as it is beautiful.

Based on labor-intensive processes that symbolize the fragility of life, Dandelight is a statement against the throwaway culture. The sculpture is made of real dandelion seeds that are handpicked during the spring season in the Netherlands. These seeds are connected to the LEDs seed by seed and form a subtle and tasteful light. A little copper stem connects the LED to a battery, which is visibly integrated into the design and not hidden away as usual. Each piece is handmade and therefore different, but they are quite obtainable – as a delightful little night light reminding us of our ongoing evolution. A poetic composition that will add some character to your home setting.
