London studio Poetic Lab has revealed a new iteration of Ripple – a lighting collection that imitates movement on water – at Milan design week. The concept design for Ripple was originally shown by Poetic Lab last year in Milan, but has since been developed further into two different sizes and put into production with Austrian crystal brand J. & L. Lobmeyr.
Ripple is a moving light piece that express the beauty of glass and celebrates it’s making process. Each set of Ripple contains a large rotating dome and a smaller dome which holds the light source. A focus beam of light projects from the smaller dome, goes all the way through the mouth-blown, unevenly shaped glass dome which is gently rotating and creates shadow and light in an ever-changing moving ripple pattern, where the aesthetic goes beyond the material itself.
“It’s not about designing a lamp, it’s about the experience and the emotion that is created by this moving light,” Poetic Lab co-founder and designer Hanhsi Chen told Dezeen.
“The inspiration of the collection comes from the nature beauty of light and fluid matters. We try to capture the essence of light through its gentle movements, just as all the nature light do,” said Chen.
