Inspired by the dynamics of water, Lovegrove stamps in an aluminium sheet the movement of water ripples, giving to the metal a beautiful fluid and organic texture.
Three stone shaped pieces moulded in aluminium host the lamp bulbs that illuminate by reflecting the light in the watery looking disc, playing with the idea of movement and the suggestive reflections of the metal waves.
The result is a highly sculptural object that reflects Lovegrove's organic approach to design. Despite the designer's elevated words it feels more as a good stylistic exercise than a futuristic, innovative legacy for the generations to come.
