eL Masterpiece chandelier
Commissioned by the high-end lighting company Zumtobel, architect Daniel Libeskind and his son Noam, an astrophysicist at the Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam in Germany, have concocted a slender, faceted chandelier that “mimics and reproduces the cosmic light that fills the Universe.”
Noam Libeskind developed an algorithm that expresses the 14-billion-year history of the cosmos in a 14-second loop. The loop was then transferred onto nearly 1,700 LEDs, each representative of a small volume of outer space. As the seconds pass, the LEDs twinkle in various colors and sequences that visualize how stars’ light has changed over billions of years.
Loomi is a modular, makeable, paintable, recyclable light that looks beautiful just about anywhere. Loomi is made up of interlinking quadrilaterals that easily connect to create wonderful lights of all shapes and sizes. Download the instructions to build yours →
Super Moon lamp
This lamp represents the Supermoon, the biggest full moon in a cycle of 18 years. It is composed of LED lights and is an accurate presentation of the moon, based on the lunar orbiter Kaguya’s 3D topographic data of the moon.
Made of electroluminescent sheets, Bright Blind simulates a window where none exists. Turning the plastic stick controls the brightness.
