Inspired by his recent trip to the Land of the Rising Sun, a young Swedish designer Johan Lindstén has created this series of spherical, semi-translucent pendant lights called ‘Melt down’. Suspended from a simple, coloured lamp cord, the design features an oval shade whose form appears to have adapted to a protruding light bulb located within. ‘Melt down’ was showcased earlier in April at Salone del Mobile’s Salone Satellite.

More about the design:

 

‘The concept and the products are based on an amazing inspirational trip to Japan that unfortunately was delayed for six months after the tragic accident in Fukushima. Would an actual meltdown occur and what would the impact be? The disaster is reflected in the lamps where the process already begun and the bulb are about to melt through the last defence of the glass.’
