This design was inspired by the fascinating sunflower seed pattern of bi-directional spirals.  It creates a breathtaking silhouette of light and shadows cast on surrounding walls.
 
The creation of a unique perforated mesh anatomy, very unconventional in the use of concrete, was the big challenge of this project. The distinct approach of the design process demanded a thorough mastering of the material.
 
Much like the versatile nature of the sunflower, the Helia series comes in several versions- ceiling, table, floor and wall lamps.
 
Materials:  Concrete
 
Designer: Dror Kaspi of Ardoma Studio
