CMYK Lamp by Dennis Parren

Dutch designer Dennis Parren created the CMYK Lamp for his graduation show from Design Academy Eindhoven. The innovative design uses LED technology to project cyan, magenta, and yellow onto the ceiling and walls. The lamp is shaped like a graphic outline and casts 3D shadows which he discovered only by accident. The experimental lamp sets out to display the mystery of  light and what it can be.

Currently on display in the Transversality Exhibition at Galerie BSL in Paris through February 11, 2012.
