Lungplant • Breathing light organism
Lungplant is the result of a research in ‘Healing environments’ by Dutch designer Tim van Cromvoirt. This concept implies that the quality of a physical environment can have a positive effect on your health being. Healing environments are designed to be nurturing and therapeutic and, most important, to reduce stress. We have become more and more disconnected from nature and one way to potential achieve a therapeutic setting is to re-connect with nature.

Lungplant is an artificial nature which is designed to reduce stress and create a medidative experience. It depicts a landscape with living, luminous organisms and explores the influence this landscape has on its spectators. These gentle inhaling and exhaling ‘organs’ show a very natural movement in a continuous cycle. By surrounding yourself with these artificial organisms you become aware of your own breathing tempo and slowly start to adapt to theirs; an effect that, you will find, calms you down. The lamps can be manually set on a desired breathing speed.
