Famous for using the term “blobject” to describe his creations, Karim Rashid is no stranger to stunning, outlandish design – if you’re not yet familiar with blobology, this incredible designer lighting piece is a perfect introduction.
The Cross Hanging Light, available though Freedom of Creation, is a juxtaposition of Rashid’s characteristic symbols overlapping, interacting, and revealing new secrets with every glance. The result is a softly glowing “blobular” cross shape that emits a soft, relaxing glow. The design process is fascinating – a computer file was converted into a real object using a unique 3-D printing technique that layers particles of nylon into incredibly complex forms like the one you see here.
The Cross Hanging Light is certainly unusual, but the design just flat-out WORKS!
