I don’t know about you, guys, but to me this unusual ceiling lamp reminded of liquid Mercury glass or metal. For those with the deep pockets to install a constellation of otherworldly, amorphous, metallic ovoids on their ceiling, Skydro might be just the thing.
In its broad appropriation of elemental forms, this innovative Ross Lovegrove lamp evokes heaven and earth, the sky above and the subterranean depths, the far reaches of space as well as the compounding mysteries of the molten pressures down in the bowels of the earth. The light also resembles a shiny, interstellar pebble, polished to a satin sheen by undetected forces.
The lamp features a mirror-treated die-cast aluminum diffuser and a painted steel-bearing structure. The lightsource is LED, and the whole piece is a visionary’s dream: individual units can be added and assembled for custom applications, creating possibilities for an entire nest of Skydros atop corridors, within salons. I also think that Skydro is a great idea if you wanna add a galaxy touch to your space, which is a hot trend right now.
