This pendant lamp is called Trap Light and it is designed by Eidhoven-based designers Gionata Gatto and Mike Thompson. The project takes a radical new approach to lighting design through the use of photoluminescent pigments to capture escaping light; and conventing waste energy back into visible light. "Photoluminescence is a process in which energy absorbed by a substance is gradually released as light, and using the Murano glass blowing technique, the designers were able to embed photoluminescent pigments into the glass body of the lamp." is how the website describes the function of the lamp.
What is really special about this lamp, is the unique and innovative function of it. Through the process the Trap Light becomes both shade and light source, emitting, absorbing and re-emitting the light. With just thirty minutes "charge" of recycled light from a traditional incandescent or LED light bulb and the lamp will provide up to eight hours of lighting. This is just amazing, as well as beautiful to look at! The different tones of light in blue and white gives a pretty glow, and the design and structure in it self is also an eye-cather... Even though it's not a huge secret that the function is the biggest attraction to the Trap Light.
