Marcus Tremontos’ El Lamps Create 3d Illusions
December 4th, 2008
At first glance, this lighting fixture might look like a table lamp. But upon further examination, it turns out that it’s actually a sconce you hang on the wall.
While the bright self-lit forms are reminiscent of neon, they actually operate using cool-burning electroluminescent wire, consuming minimal power.
Numerous wires are precisely manipulated to create amazing sculptural forms, including traditional lamps, chandeliers, as well as more abstract shapes.
Tremento is makes his lighting fixtures in extremely limited editions, and you can find some of his recent works over at Generate LE.
