An Adjustable Moving Lamp Inspired by Movements in Nature
View Slideshow

Berlin-based Studio Lieven were inspired by movements in nature, like when flowers open or when jellyfish swim through the water, while designing the inMOOV lamp. The faceted lamp’s body is made using the Invertible Disc, something of their own creation, that’s based on inventor/artist Paul Schatz’ infamous Invertible Cube from 1929.

The lamp is able to move from a smaller fixture to a much larger, stretched out one due to the Invertible Disc folding and unfolding of itself. Hidden within are strips of LEDs that change in color temperature based on if the fixture is open (3500 Kelvin), forming a soft light illuminating the ceiling, or closed (2500 Kelvin), which creates a more focused, warm light pointing down. The fixture easily opens and closes up by hand.
