Want This Light

Since we’re on the subject of “blobjects” and such.

I want this lamp too. It was recently designed by Ross Lovegrove for Artemide. The “pebbles” are molded thermoplastic and polished chrome finish. Kind of “techno-zen”.  The piece tops out at about 43″ in diameter, and really won’t kill the pocket book with a price tag around $3000.00. I dig the floating look and it would also look good in my black room with those bad a** speakers. The first thing I thought about when I saw these lights was the works of artist William Cannings. Click here and you’ll know what I mean. The big difference is Cannings is inflating metal. It sooo cool. Take a look at some more of his works here.
