the moon’s surface is adorned with a multitude of lunar craters that form a distinct texture. each imperfection appears as an indentation that adds character to the mysterious terrain. but what if these features could be translated into the design of an object? taking note of the satellite orb, constantin bolimond has created the ‘armstrong light trap’.

the devices articulate these details in an interactive manner. its spherical body has replaced the concave pits with perforations occupied by cork cylinders. each protruding piece can then be removed to adjust the overall brightness of the interior cavity, which houses energy-efficient, warm white LED lights. the technology can be run by a battery or power supply network that operates under the principle of inclusion: the bulb turns on by removing the circles, and turns off by them back into place.

light intensity can be regulated by the number of open craters
