studio DRIFT E-Dandelight with Dome & Base
Based on labor-intensive processes that symbolize the fragility of life, Amsterdam-based studio DRIFT has created a powerful statement against the throwaway culture with the E-Dandelight. 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 poetic composition that will add some character to your home setting. The E- Dandelight is powered with an electrical cable, instead of battery-powered.
Studio DRIFT creates sculptures, environments, and performances that offer striking commentaries and speculative imaginings about humanity’s relationships with nature and technology. In recognition of the studio's achievements, Collab - the Philadelphia Museum of Art's museum affiliate group for modern and contemporary design - honored DRIFT with its 2022 Collab Design Excellence Award. Rhythms of Nature: The Art & Design of DRIFT is on view in the museum's Collab Gallery through April 23.
