We’re tempted to label it the…flowering…of a new movement. On the heels of our recent piece on the charming Blom table lamp by FontanaArte, in which movable ‘petals’ may be utilized to manage the flow of light, comes this enchanting petal-primarily based lighting concept from Belarusian designer Constantin Bolimond, who sees enlightening possibilities in optical sensors. Bolimond’s Bloom pendant hinges on the notion of illumination that responds straight to altering light circumstances, contingent upon a series of moving parts that progressively open as daylight winds down. Bloom’s petal-shaped components—which, according to the designer, might be crafted from wood, plastic or paper—open up to reveal the lamp’s complete wattage only at evening fortunately, its graceful tulip bulb shape appears plenty fairly even when completely closed.
