The Andromeda Lamp by Ross Lovegrove

Designed by British designer Ross Lovegrove for Yamagiwa, the Andromeda lamp is an artificial structure for capturing artificial light. The piece is moulded from a single material as a unified white botanical, aquatic organism to softly implant a sense of nature into the spaces we inhabit.

Here are a few words about Andromeda from the designer : “Emerging from the concept of Netification; the reduction of physical mass through selective perforation across a pre defined form; the concept floats more as a diatomic sea creature in the free ocean of space. It floats in a state of apparent anti gravity, capturing its light within to graphically delineate a structural net as a soft external shadow of itself. The light that is emitted from its LED clusters is reflected back into itself via mirrors orientated to maximise their output and to freely distribute a very pure light. It becomes the source of ambient light within a room, vesting gentle forms like large roots onto adjacent surfaces to form extended relationships onto and into architectural dimensions.
