I still feel very attracted to nature inspired design. Sometimes the connection between the product and nature is very obvious and direct. On other occasions, it’s more of matter of an artistic metaphor.
Don’t you think that Johannes Tjernberg and Rasmus Malbert’s a Piece of Forest lighting installation belongs to that more abstract category? A Piece of Forest is actually a metaphor of life – you can start with one single pod; yet this pod has the ability to assemble into groups and grow. Each pod features one LED-module that softly shines on neighbouring pods that in result create a glowing surface, coloured by the different coloured pods.
How to say much with only a couple of words? Branching Bubbles by Lindsey Adelman is a very literal name for what her lamp really stands for. As a Piece of Forest it would grow and spread light, and you will be the designer behind this phenomena.
