Planet Suspension Lighting
Created by Changedesign for Italian lighting company Foscarini, This impressive pendant lamp is “inspired by a study commissioned by NASA (carried out by Dainese in partnership with MIT) on high performance “intelligent” clothing worn by astronauts,” according to Design Milk. The Planet suspension lighting features a fabric exterior without any inner structure to form it. Instead, the lamp uses thread that has been treated at high temperature to form it. Once cooled, the thread hardens into an exoskeleton to support the lamp’s shape.
