Mercury Ceiling Lamp
A ceiling fixture that places a floating assembly of large pebbles below a simple modern aluminum disc. These in turn reflect each other, bouncing light between their taught biomorphic surfaces and reflecting the environment around them. During the day, the piece acts as a sculptural object reflecting the dynamics of natural light and movement of people around them.
One of the most influential designers of his generation, Ross Lovegrove began his career in the early 1980’s at Frog Design in West Germany.
