Look! Swing-Arm Lamp as Planter

This vase by Marc Ligos was born out of a workshop by Surtido, an organization promoting up and coming Spanish designers. While this is a ceramic piece attached to the desk lamp arm, it gives us an idea for creative reuse of the real thing.

We'd have to use glue to keep the arm in place so it doesn't bend under the weight of the plant, but it would be extra awesome if something like this retained its ability to be repositioned.

designboom has a great post featuring more of the ceramic pieces produced in the workshop.
