These lights made from desert sand!

28 Oct

At first sight you don’t understand whats is the specialty of these lamps, because they are so simple.

But if you look at it carefully, you see the material, which is sand, of these lamps..

The shades are made by pouring sand into a glue-covered mould, creating a thin, rigid layer when the glue has set.When the LED light source is turned on the grainy pattern is illuminated, casting a warm light and highlighting the raw nature of the material.The form of the shade was designed to resemble primitive desert structures.
