Studio Shulab debuted the Light Pot at IMM Cologne 2009 and immediately struck a chord with environmentalists. The half lamp, half plant pot is designed to ‘grow’ with the plant, as the telescoping LED light and shade move higher as the plant grows bigger. It hasn’t reached shelves just yet, but will be stiff competition for the Aerogarden, a similar product with a somewhat disappointed following.
