WHEN NATURE ILLUMINATES
Organic materials inform lighting company Feliix’s latest collection. Molded into space-age silhouettes, the tabletop and suspended fixtures find much in common with underwater inhabitants. For the Coral Reef lamp, a sleek beacon that derives its design from the jagged cropping of rock and coral, the design team collaborated with Taiwan’s National Museum of Marine Biology & Aquarium to evoke the feeling of light refracting underneath water. The jellyfish served as inspiration for the Aurelia, its transparent double acrylic shades mimicking the sea creature’s rounded form.
Feliix touched on organic forms beyond the sea in duplicating natural-growing crystals with the Crystal Lamp, a complex, manoeuvrable, multi-unit light that delivers a subtle glow through its diffuser. Connected by magnet, users can adjust and mold the piece to the shape of their liking.
