Gaël Wuithier’s ‘Apollo 8 CM’ light design is named for, and reminiscent of, the command module of the Apollo spacecraft, the first manned spacecraft to leave Earth orbit, reach the Earth’s Moon, orbit it and return safely to Earth.

Apollo 8 CM is a suspended light made of wood, about a meter in diameter, available in three sizes. Like the space module, “The external 12- branched wooden structure was conical in shape, assembled at the ends by 2 aluminium discs.” says Woodlabo. “Its high dome acted as a thermal shield keeping in the light source.”
