Inspired by a hanging plant of the botanical family of wisteria, GLY not only appears as a decorative luminaire for vertical gardens. It is the ultimate combination of bespoke luminaires and biophilic lighting design. A perfect fit for ornamental plant surfaces.

This special luminaire, designed by the lighting design practice lightsphere in collaboration with Martin Nievergelt product design, supports the ornamental plant’s health and pleasant appearance, within the Zurich Innovation Center of Givaudan. Its perfect integration into the greenery underlines the biophilic design. The innovative luminaire is composed by a curved hook-shaped body, that carries nine rotatable heads. This flexible system allows an ideal light distribution on irregular, complex surfaces like columns. The geometry follows the functional purpose and its harmonious proportion is calibrated for an aesthetical enhancement of the luminaire shape. Each head is equipped with special LED chips and a honeycomb louver for a glare-free appearance from any angle. Various facet of bronzed brass anodized finishes where combined to create a multifaceted reflective surface. This allows GLY to reflect the surrounding and neatly camouflages itself into the green surface of the column.

As we love to put extraordinary ideas into a perfectly designed and manufactured product, Monolicht is pleased to support lightsphere with the manufacturing process in creating a unique and outstanding luminaire.
