Comments Off on Amazons biospheres spring to life with first planting in Seattle

Tech giant Amazon took a big step towards completing its incredible nature-filled biospheres last week. The company celebrated its ceremonial “first planting”—an Australian tree fern—inside the campus’ three giant geodesic spheres . The 11-foot-tall fern is the first of what will be hundreds of tropical plants to fill the domes in the heart of Seattle. Designed by NBBJ , the three steel-framed spheres are part of Amazon’s $4 billion planned campus that will cover 10 blocks of downtown Seattle when complete. Although the greenhouse-like biospheres will not have official office space, they will be filled with hundreds of tropical plants. Workers can use the space as a therapeutic outlet, which the company believes will help encourage employees to “think and work differently.” Related: Amazon’s biosphere domes are slowly taking shape in Seattle The giant spheres—the tallest of the three reaches 90 feet in height and 130 feet in diameter—will be set to 60 percent humidity and 72 degrees Fahrenheit during the day. The multistory glass buildings can accommodate over 800 staff and personnel. Over 3,000 exotic plant species are currently being incubated and tested for the spheres at a nearby greenhouse. The high-tech greenhouses are slated for completion in early 2018. Via Daily Mail Images via seattle spheres

Comments Off on Three Wise Men Combine Wood, Craft and an LED into One Lamp

Three Wise Men are a group of lovely wooden lamps handcrafted into different sizes and shapes. Designed by Hong-Kong-born, UK-based Samuel Chan for his own brand Channel , they give off a warm and focused shine thanks to the use of an E27 LED bulb. The lamps were crafted from solid American white oak and American black walnut and given a slender bottle-like top. The series takes its name from the group of men who (according to the Bible) visited Jesus when he was born—we however spotted them hanging at this year’s  Milan Design Week. + Channel Photos by Silvia Perfetti for Inhabitat and Channels Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: “energy efficiency” , American black walnut , American white oak , Channel , green lighting , handmade , lamps , Milan Design Week 2013 , Milan Furniture Fair , Samuel Chan , Wood , wooden lamps
