LED lights often look like glow-in-the-dark Tic Tacs, so this gentle, paperlike design is a much-welcome departure:
Munich-based lighting designer Ingo Maurer created the Dew Drops lamp by integrating a sprinkling of LEDs into a see-through 16.5”x12” plastic sheet. The result is something you might find at IKEA on a good day.
For fans of modern design, it’s refreshing to see a gentle, energy-efficient light source that doesn’t resemble a normal bulb. The lighted sheet looks almost like a radiant hammock or a magical page from an unpublished Harry Potter book.
Gizmodo isn’t sure when the Dew Drops lamp will be on the market, but consider us first in line.
