Need more light in your life? Grow it on a tree. The Pear Light, designed by Nick Foley, is a hand forged steel tree upon which grow three pears. Inside each pear are 10 ultra bright LEDs and some rechargeable batteries. The pears attach to the tree with magnets; when you want some light, pick a pear, and when your pear goes dead (in about an hour), just stick it back on the tree and it’ll recharge itself. An elegant (and bright) idea, but the “hand forged” part makes me think it’ll be hard to get your hands on one. More pics after the jump.
