The Strano Lab at MIT and the KVA Matx design team, led by Professor Sheila Kennedy, present Plant Properties at the 2019 Design Triennial as an ongoing experiment that is part of the Nanobionic Plant Project at MIT. The goal of this project is to produce ambient lighting with living plants growing in their wild and natural states. The plants are not genetically altered in any way, and the nanobionic techniques are biocompatible and could be applied to any existing plant, bush or tree.
