Taking their cue from ‘the sun and its surrounding celestial bodies’, a duo of young Dutch, Eindhoved-trained designers behind the enigmatically named OS ∆ OOS studio have created a three-piece series of lamps called ‘Syzygy.’ Owing its name to an astronomical name denoting ‘a straight line configuration of three celestial bodies in a gravitational system,’ the collection comprises two table and one wall light models, each of which demonstrates a particular aspect of the syzygy: transit, occultation and eclipse. The lamps are currently on view at a ‘Craft & Scenography’ exhibition in Basel.

More about the collection:

 

‘Everyday the sun ‘rises and sets’ making life on earth possible. The sun was our first and only light source, in contradiction to the light sources we have today the sun is a continuously never ending burning ball of fire. We experience night only when a part of the earth is cast into shadow from itself as it rotates around the sun.

 

‘These new lights are inspired on the same principle, the light source is constant, remaining always on. The light is adjusted by a subtle rotation of three light filtering discs places in front of the light source. The rotational combinations of these three discs mimic the effects of a syzygy.’
