The Atan: an LED Lamp Inspired by Avatar

We love neat LED lighting solutions, whether we spot them in DIY projects or stunning chandeliers. This lighting concept was inspired by Avatar and is an elegant and modern lamp. This might be one of the few pieces of tech inspired by the Sci-Fi blockbuster that it is not blue and would actually work well in a modern home.

Inspired by Avatar, Russian designer Anton Kozhevnikov has created the Atan, a modular LED lamp concept with one base that allows for one or three fixtures. With a heavy base for stability, this flexible lamp allows for additional modules to be plugged into empty sockets for bigger or brighter illumination. The plugs are integrated with ledges which snap into matching holes making for an easy connection and plug release. The lamp also has a bendable neck so that you can position the light where it is needed.

We think the design is simple and fun and we have to say this is hands down one of the most sophisticated concepts we have seen with this much geek cred. Did we mention that the name of the lamp comes from the word for light translated from the Na'vi? Na'vi, for the those who have not seen the film, is the language spoken at the planet Pandora.
