Lunaria Annua

I designed and produced an illuminating object

It’s called Lunaria Annua after mystical silver dollar plant seed pods. I envision it as a wall sconce, mounted next to a mirror in a swanky hotel bathroom or speakeasy powder room, casting soft light on the user while she reapplies her lipstick.

It’s made from 1/4″ brass tubing brazed to a 1/2″ main tube, 54 super-bright LEDs and 5 layers of acrylic for each petal. The petals are wrapped in rice paper. It mounts flush with the wall and wires through the back to either a touch sensor or a metal touch sensor that allows the user to dim the light by touching the lamp’s main stem.
