“Everything in nature is a result of millions of years of evolution, which shaped its forms in a perfect balance of functional and aesthetic values”, reads a quote from the company’s profile. True enough, lighting designs from Seedling Kenya are the materialization of this philosophy, one that envisions humans and nature living alongside in a technological world.With a background in architecture, Fabiana and Roberto’s designs are likely the first ever to use Baobab pods, indigenous tree bark, palm leaves, shredded plantation timber and other unusual local natural materials. “The slight imperfections inherent in any material harvested from nature just empowers and transforms it in a unique way.” Fabiana says of their work. “Designers should look at nature not only for inspiration but also as a source of prime materials to be up cycled. This is the only way we can create designs that are sustainable in both technique and the message they convey.”
