The Dandelight is a little light made from a dandelion. Dandelight is made from real dandelions, picked by hand in large numbers every Spring.
The seeds are glued onto the LED, one by one. The concept is based on the same idea as Studio Drift’s most well- known work Fragile Future III: an expression of a critical yet utopian vision of the future of our planet: where two seemingly contradictory trends will strike a pact to survive anyway.
Studio Drift is known for this quirky and distinctive aesthetic idiom, and depicting nature -both formal and philosophical- always as a reference.
