Design firm Boiler has created some beautiful light fixtures that are inspired by plant-life, in both form and function. The fixture to the left (untitled) casts beautiful shadows through its flower-like symmetry. The Protea (right) mimics thermo tropic plants - the individual pieces of the lamp shade move away from the bulb when it's hot, and close in on the bulb as it cools down. The result is a very dynamic light fixture.
