These things are made of concrete. Concrete shade-style fixtures… the manufacturer includes two materials, concrete and metal fittings. Let’s just say you’re ordering the extra-strength junction box and mount for this one. There’s also a table lamp, which seems to lie on its side.
This is the work of Dror Caspi of Ardoma Concrete Creations — a designer who makes products out of what they call “the liquid stone.”
HELIA is a pendant and table light fixture made of concrete.
This design was inspired by the fascinating sunflower seed pattern of fibonacci spirals.
To create the unique mesh anatomy, simulating a weaving of the concrete, we had to develop a special concrete mix and a new casting method.
The resulting aesthetics, unusual in the use of concrete, creates a clean and elegant exterior surface and a hypnotic interior surface.
HELIA comes in light grey, dark grey, white, yellow, blue, and red concrete.
Materials: concrete, metal fittings
Bulb socket: G9/GU10/E27

Check out Ardoma and the Helia collection — and some of the studio’s other projects are pretty cool. Ova was pretty cool, as was Split. Here’s Split, even though this is Helia’s party…
