Nature has always been a source of inspiration for artists, sculptors, writers and other creative people, and the same can be said about designers and architects, of course. And here’s one more design studio and piece inspired by nature: Berlin-based Studio Lieven were inspired by movements in nature, like when flowers open or when jellyfish swim through the water, while designing the inMOOV lamp. The faceted lamp’s body is made using the Invertible Disc, something of their own creation.
The lamp is able to move from a smaller fixture to a much larger, stretched out one due to the Invertible Disc folding and unfolding of itself. Hidden within are strips of LEDs that change in color temperature based on if the fixture is open (3500 Kelvin), forming a soft light illuminating the ceiling, or closed (2500 Kelvin), which creates a more focused, warm light pointing down. The fixture easily opens and closes up by hand.
These unique futuristic lamps definitely remind of nature but this is a fresh and futuristic take on the natural shapes and forms.
