Coffee tables lamps are an important resource for any bookworm. Mostly plastics and bulky, they aren’t exactly a perfect solution for the most conscious environmentalist, so what how would the books be read? Manuel Baade , designer– part Carpenter- and animator from Germany proposes a natural model alternative which he believes to have solve this problem. The eco-cystrals.
A strong nature lover, his daily walks into the Forest to collect eatable Mushrooms brought him into the idea, after little mishap which see him collecting bio-luminescence Mushrooms.Fascination brought him into Electronics, LED Technologies and tool which came in handle through the production of his log-lamps.

Where this design shine is the blend of the natural and artificial; the idea and simplicity of the natural environment brought to the reading table. He currently offer them for sale on his online store , and share some of his designs here
