'andromeda' by ross lovegrove
270 x 800 x 460 mm
after the presentation of the prototype last year, 'andromeda' by UK designer ross lovegrove
for japanese lighting company yamagiwa has now been released. the hanging light appears
as if it were some kind of sea creature floating in the ocean. LED clusters emit light
via mirror reflectors within its delineated configuration, distributing pure brightness and shadow,
and creating an ambiance which appears much like reflections of water.
LED clusters are embedded in the crossing parts of the organic structure, a form which is
indicative of lovegrove. it is made from a hard polyurethane foam and steel with a panted finish,
while mirror reflectors are attached with magnets providing flexibility in adjusting the light
to desired angles.
'andromeda' distributes light and shadow creating an ambiance similar to that of water reflections
