There's just something magical about having suspended ceiling lights arranged like constellations. We just love how these lights look. Hopefully, by looking at these, you'll find some new ways of arranging your own lights.

These lights are by Bastien Carré and are part of his Céleste collection. Carré uses LED lights as his main material to make these starry lights. They are perfect for this type of lighting. They have a great lifetime, need little electricity and enabled him to make his lights extremely light. Most of his pieces are limited production as they take a lot of hours to complete.

Carré was also able to make the electrical wiring almost invisible, completing the illusion of these celestial lights. His lights are entirely handmade and usually need to be soldered one LED at a time, often times there are hundreds of LEDs in one piece. These lights are part of an exhibit at the Nimagine gallery in Nîmes, France.

We think that these lights are great and that it should be not that hard to make something similar on your own. By this, we mean that you could simple rearrange some LED lighting, or suspended lighting, to give a similar effect that these handmade pieces of art.
