arturo erbsman's atmos lamp uses water condensation to diffuse light

arturo erbsman shows the delicacy of water condensation with atmos lamp




often using water as a medium and aesthetic radiance, as evidenced in his ‘polar light‘, arturo erbsman once again employs the transparent liquid to create an azure ambiance with ‘atmos’. the lamp utilizes the condensation of water to diffuse light, resulting in an effect that is airy and dewy. the luminaire is a winner of the 2014 biennale interieur awards which acknowledges projects that showcase the impact of new technologies and materials on product design.
