Nissan Kinjalina, a designer from Kazakhstan, has created a striking new design for a common object – the Living Light lamp, a translucent container which appears as though light has been simply poured into it.
Created in a range of different sizes and offering varying levels of light, the lamps are made from a metal frame, the lower portion of which is encased in a thin layer of acrylic. Once illuminated, this gives the impression of a kind of liquid light being emitted from the lamp – playing with perspective and creating an object which is at once familiar and surreal.
The Living Light lamp is a simple but striking design – a playful way to bring a usually forgotten object into the spotlight. [h/t ignant.de]
