Artemide Calipso Ceiling Lamp
Designed using a photograph of the moon and a complex algorithym on a computer, the Calipso Lamp is truly unique both in its conception and form. Constructed from a honeycomb formed with shaped tubes, the lamp has a textured geometric surface. The organic shapes within its structure form an almost perfect circle, slim in profile yet wide in surface area for a widely distributed illumination.
