"Creating objects is like playing with the forces of nature on scale." The natural sciences and specifically the characteristics of materials are David Derksen's main sources of inspiration. The behavior of materials and their processing and construction methods are the main focus of his work.
The Atom Light was inspired by the atomic model. The pendant lamp comes flat pack as an LED tube with attached disks and flexible rods. The rods can be put into the disks, creating a graphical sphere. By changing the configuration of the rods, the pattern can be changed into more helix type curves or crossed.
