A creative design that references the movement of celestial bodies.

South African artist and designer Jesse Ede has a penchant for looking to the stars for inspiration. Following on the footsteps of his Eclipse design, the Orbit light takes cues from outer space for its sculptural appearance and dynamic build. Creative and eye-catching, the light features an ingenious design. The mobile elements allow the user to swivel the light bulb around a half-dome which also rotates around its central axis. Thus, the light recreates the movement of a moon around a planet. To highlight the difference between the two elements, the designer used premium materials such as brass and bronze.

While the dome boasts a textured surface and a cool gray-blue color on the exterior, it features a polished gold finish on the interior. Depending on where the user focuses the light, Orbit reflects it back with a golden or a blueish hue. At the same time, the lamp creates changing shadows on the ceiling and walls with every movement. This set up doesn’t feature any wires, offering an easy way to orbit the two elements in a complete rotation. The Orbit light is exhibited at the Southern Guild gallery in Cape Town until September 12, 2018. Photographs© Hayden Phipps.
