Gallery: SPIRALIGHT by Robin Carpenter

 

Evoking a gallery of stars, Robin Carpenter’s eye-catching LED chandelier, Spiralight, demonstrates how good those little light emitting diodes can look when they are used in a clever way. This is what LED lighting should be all about. The creative LED Chandelier recently made waves at the IMM Cologne design fair 2007 . Delicately suspended with 216 LEDS meticulously interwoven into a single twisting strand, the stunning Spiralightis typical of the Berlin-based designer’s signature aesthetic – in evoking a sense of the organic by way of obstructing symmetry in linear production via algorithms.

As for her inspiration for the chandelier, Carpenter claims that she was interested in creating a work which channeled the effect of ‘tracing a shooting star’. The unique piece succeeded in nabbing the Germany Design Council’s weightiest honor at the IMM Cologne Fair – the Lights of the Future 2006 award.

    It relates a home enviornment perfectly with life’s bigger picture, and in a beautiful way!

    Lyrical, dramatic and quite beautiful. Congradulations to the Robin on a “Stellar” work.
    Whether we want to acknowledge it or not, LED is the future of lighting design and it’s good
    to see designers embracing it in such an artistic manner.

    It seems to look better when lit. Otherwise, it looks like a quirky art piece.
