The Otherwordly Lighting of Christopher Moulder

Most everyone knows what xenon bulbs are by now: the bright, near-sunlight in spectrum bulbs that make driving at night occasionally a hassle, but supposedly help driver visibility (the tradeoff seems questionable). But it's not often we see the rare odorless noble gas used in home lighting solutions. Designer Christopher Moulder's SHADE overhead lighting combines form and function with 28 high efficiency Xenon Festoon bulbs, with a whole catalog of lighting designs that remind us of nudibranchs, carnivorous sundew plants, and various otherworldly shapes...

We first saw Christopher Moulder's design over at Moco Loco, but upon investigating realized there was a large back a catalog of unusual lighting designs created by Moulder of even more wondrously strange nature. Some are one of a kind artistic pieces, while others are offered as built-to-order options.

Our favourite is the HUGE Tesseract Atrium Chandelier, a cross of a sea horse and the futuristic shape of a space faring solar sail driven space ship. At least that's what we see upon looking at it; many of designs are Rorschach tests, revealing what your imagination can come up with looking upon lighting designs so unique.
