With a form derived from the concentric Fresnel lens, designer Dirk Vander Kooij's new pendant makes the most of recycled synthetics.

Details: "It looks like a brilliant gold colored celestial body, but it's a lamp made out of recycled synthetics and polished metal." says designer Vander Kooij. The shape is derived from the Fresnel lens, a special lens that concentrates light into a relatively narrow beam which is used in lighthouses, searchlights and navigation lights.


"The shape causes the light out of the 360 led lights to be sent up and down. The layered structure diffuses the warm light so it's not unpleasant to look into the lamp."


The lamp is hung on a cup-and-ball joint so it can be aimed accurately.
