The SUNset Lamp By Studio Nina Lieven

Bringing the colors of the sun’s life cycle indoors via creative lighting design.

German designer Nina Lieven blends geometric forms, natural phenomena, and kinetic design into her work with the aim to bring some intrigue and fascination into modern interiors. The SUNset Lamp exemplifies the designer’s creative approach to design perfectly. While referencing the sun’s natural cycles, the lamp recreates the colors of the day indoors. The ingenious build features a central cylinder and a metal ring which allow the user to interact with the lamp and change the mood of the lighting. To adjust the warmth of the lamp, the user has to pull or push the metal ring which moves the cylinder on a vertical plane. Thus, the light transforms from bright to a darker orange or reddish hue that reminds of a sunset. The colors range from neutral blue to yellow and deep red.

Even when not in use, the SUNset Lamp makes a lasting impression with its kinetic sculpture design. Perfect as a ceiling light, the lamp is assembled by hand in Berlin. Quality materials include brass and aluminum as well as acrylic glass. Inside the cylinder, there’s an external LED light bulb. The user can change the temperature of the light from 3500 to 2000 Kelvin to reproduce the colors of the sun through a daily life cycle. Available from December 2018, the SUNset Lamp has received the German Design Award 2019. Photographs© Julien Menand, Nina Lieven.
