Blime: A DIY Parametric Light Feature by formatters

At last week's Apartment Therapy meetup, designers Alvaro Soto and Mauricio Sanchez of formatters presented their design for a unique hanging light fixture. Its form was inspired by the shape of audio waves recorded during a dinner with friends, and you can build one yourself from a kit that will be available shortly.

The kit contains 256 modules in 16 unique rows. Each piece is individually tagged so you can tell where it goes in the fixture.

The light kit is not currently in production, but you can reserve one in advance by pledging to support the project on Kickstarter. Blime will be available in multiple colors, including a wood veneer version (shown above) with color on the inside.

Thanks, Alvaro and Mauricio!
