Blending organic elements with industrial materials, Ralph Nauta and Lonneke Gordijn’s dandelion chandelier offers a meeting point between man-made and natural ecologies. Fragile from inception, elements of the dandelion are outfitted with LED bulbs and then placed on a frame in an attempt to illicit the image of a growing construction:

[T]he story about the amalgamation of nature and technology. In the distant future these two extremes have made a pact to survive. Fragile Future III combines an electrical system with real dandelions in a light sculpture that is predestined to overgrow a surface.
