Nebula Suspension light with diffused light emission reminds a part of an epic science fiction story by Joris Laarman and it fits the bill perfectly. Sold through Italy-based FLOS, this unique lamp suspends from the ceiling and provides diffused lighting. Sure to provide a lot of drama, the main body is made using die-cast aluminum, while the surrounding ten cones are glass-blown. The constellation of lampshades are meant to resemble a burst of light and is assembled in a seemingly random way to give eternal youthfulness.
“This constellation of lampshades arose while playing and composing with many different sizes. I was struck by the strong image that appeared when I just combined them as a bunch. They emitted from a core like an explosion of light, like star in the sky. By combining these well recognizable shapes they form a chandelier-like suspension lamp making something very elegant from the ordinary. They are composed with care but still random leaving it a lively nebula hanging from ceiling”. Joris Laarman
