Fascinating Lamps That Dance Like Jellyfish

In a charmed and continuous blend of technology and organic aesthetic, Studio Drift, an art and design studio in Amsterdam, has produced a set of lovely silken ceiling lamps often called “Shylights” that impersonator the circadian rhythms of flowers by opening and closing in a hypnotizing dance. Therefore, in flowers, nyctinasty is the opening and closing of their petals or leaves in response to light or darkness. Moreover it is organic movement that the “Shylights” seek to emulate. They work merely when activated, the flower’s cocoon drops up to 30ft down, inflating the flower-like silken skirt in the lamp’s frame and revealing its complete beauty. The set of lamps then rises and falls in a programmable choreographed sequence. The lamps are presently a perpetual exhibit at Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum, which requested that the studio make the lamps after seeing their non-permanent model.
