What a good idea. This is a show stopper and sure to spawn imitations. We are surprised that it hasn't been done before... by Ingo Maurer, for example. Designed by Afroditi Krassa, "World View is a virtually weightless lighting fixture.Constructed from a cluster of 91 LEDs suspended from a silver helium balloon and anchored by a spool at floor level, World View proves the simplest, most humble materials can reach great heights." Indeed. It will be available in through Innermost early next year and will cost @ $600. (Gizmodo) MGR PS. Has anyone noticed that Gizmodo is inluding home furnishings in their weblog lately? What's that about?
