Designed by Constantin Wortmann at Büro für Form, the Cosmo Pendel RGB/W LED suspended luminaire for the German manufacturer less’n’more gmbh is a dimmable pendant lamp that is zestful and unobtrusively toys with the height of architectural space.
Cosmo’s organic shape of the luminaire is made up of six flat spheres that are inter-connected.
A circle of six light knots (each equipped with two compact fluorescent lamps Dulux T/E 32W) dissolves into the third dimension or hovers as a pure light form above every room.
Cast as a single piece in a two-cavity mold in a rotation process Cosmo’s design proved to be an unprecedented challenge both in terms of engineering and precision.
The design of the luminaire, which is 160 centimeters across, clearly brings to mind the molecular structure of platelets.
Moreover, Cosmo looks different each time the vantage point changes.
Using an RGB color changer, the color mood of the dazzle-free light can be adjusted individually.
As regards energy efficiency, by virtue of being based on LED technology the luminaire is ideal.
And with its highly varied color spectrum and fluid shape, it fits optimally into any lobby’s joyful interior.
