Lunar cabinet glows in the dark with eco-paint
We are captivated by the lunar visions created in this glowing ‘Fullmoon’ credenza. Designed by Sotirios Papadopoulos for ENNEZERO, this intriguing piece brings a realistic recreation of the moon’s surface to light with a luminescent paint. Despite looking very chemical-intensive and unsustainable, the glow-in-the-dark paint is actually an ‘ecological powder’ that’s been modified into a substance called ELI, or ‘Ecolightinside.’
We haven’t been able to get the whole sustainable scoop on the science behind the “eco paint”, but if it’s as environmentally friendly as the designer claims then we’re all for it. We’re starstruck by the ‘Fullmoon,’ and also impressed with the multi-disciplinary approach that Papadopoulos takes in his work. Not only did he design the cabinet, he also invented the “eco paint” that gives it its unique look, and curated the ‘dEMOsign’ exhibition that features the cabinet. The exhibition was hosted by the SOHO gallery as part of this year’s Milan Furniture Fair.
The ‘Fullmoon’ sideboard will go into production, however, the novelty status of the design is being pushed to the max with only twenty-four pieces being made in a strictly limited-edition run.
