Sometimes simple designs inspired by everyday things may prove as functional as the more sophisticated ones, and with a high aesthetic value if you are a fan of handmade-looking objects and creative lighting design. The latest project of Spanish designer Silvia Ceñal Idarreta is an eye-catching hanging lamp, simply called Macaron Lamp.
Discovering everything that could be done with fabrics and laces and fascinated by the traditional French pastry called macaron, Silvia Ceñal Idarreta imagined this interesting pendant lampthat once established in a certain decor, it’s likely to grab all attention due to its colorful and unusual design. She originally combined wood with wires, which transmit a feeling of three-dimensional.
The bulb was subtly added in the middle of the design, the overall look inspiring playfulness creating an interesting optical illusion by making you believe its body isn’t supported by anything and levitates around the bulb. But in fact body is upsholded by a round wood top, invisible when viewed from the front. Creative, isn’t it?
