Aeon Rocket by Morten Voss for Lightyears
Morten Voss has a penchant for using familiar materials in innovative and striking fashion. Aeon Rocket is the result of his vision of combining metal and polypropylene in a single design. The result is a real pleasure to the eye. This new lamp for Lightyears is the first pendant in history to take full advantage of the luminous qualities of these materials simultaneously in the same pendant.
Morten Voss has put a great deal of effort into creating harmonious proportions in this lamp. Aeon Rocket strikes a fine balance between a simple steel/aluminium upper shade and a gauzy lower shade. However, the impression of lightness is created by hours and hours of meticulous manual work. 8 light bands made of recyclable polypropylene are carefully woven together into 100 and 98 round openings respectively, allowing the light to stream through unhindered.
The metal upper shade ensures that the lamp casts plenty of light downwards. The polypropylene, in turn, has unique luminous qualities, with the material beautifully illuminated, while still diffusing the light. Suspending the lamp from on high allows you to take advantage of the matching bulb shield to prevent the light source from being visible.
Aeon Rocket is available in two sizes, Ø400 and Ø600 mm. It comes in two semi matt colours: Aeon-Black is dark grey, whereas Aeon-Grey is light grey. This striking pendant is perfectly suited to restaurants, hotels and shops, whilst also looking great suspended above the dining table in your own home.
The new lamps are currently on show at the Stockholm Furniture & Northern Light Fair.
