The Atomheart story
Atomheart has been created with inspiration from the Sci-Fi design universe, where everything is possible and nothing is inconceivable. As such Sci-Fi and Atomheart are a tribute to imagination as one of mankind’s most important qualities. The lamp itself is a fantasy of the classic presentation of the atom, where the paths of the particles form concentric lines around the nucleus and together sketch out a dynamic spherical body.
When the lamp is lit, the design of the shade forms contrasts which enhance the impression of the form of the glass, where no two angles are alike, but change all the way round. So the lamp appears as a complex and distinctive light source with a life of its own.
The Atomheart pendant comes in two sizes:
P1: The small lamp = Ø 25cm
P2: The big lamp = Ø 40cm
The Atomheart fabrication process
The Atomheart pendant lamps are made of hand-blown acid frosted opal glass in three layers, which in the pendant lamps encircle the light source all the way round and are crowned by a white high-gloss suspension.
