Nosigner, a Japanese design practice, created a Moon Lamp made with LED lights.
– N o s i g n e r – M o o n L a m p –
The project was inspired by the ‘Supermoon’ lunar occurrence that happened back on March 19, 2011. The ‘Supermoon’, was when the moon appeared 14% bigger and 30% brighter in the night sky back in Japan on that date.
The design on the lamp is also accurate too, in terms of its surface detail. If you look at the photos you can make out the small indents, craters and raised areas. This is thanks to the data retrieved by Japan’s lunar orbiter spacecraft, Kaguya.
I love the simple design, I found it quite surreal the longer that I looked at it too. I stumbled across this whilst browsing through IGNANT and just had to share it on my blog for you readers. Let me know your thoughts on this piece in the comments below.
