A few days ago I saw the movie “HER” and in one scene I saw a structure that caught my attention, I returned to the scene and saw in detail the structure and it occurred to me that could make a lamp with this idea.

My first intention was to line the inside of the structure with parchment paper and place a focus on the central part, but when you saw the evidence that the struture was losing its charm somewhat; so I decided to use LEDs in the base and thus to illuminate the structure from below getting a more dramatic effect.

Today, this lamp is on my nightstand and I enjoy every day.

Lovely! Is there a filter over the LEDs? Is there anything on the top layer of the lamp to reflect/absorb the light, or does it go straight to the ceiling?

Hi Henry, so is there anything above the LEDs, is a sanded glass; at first I thought about leaving the LEDs exposed as projected very striking shadows on the ceiling (think 48 leds and the shadows they cast), but the light was very strong, so when testing sanded glass just above the LEDs, I like the effect, brightening the lamp and ceiling.

Also connect half the leds to a switch and the other half to another, so I have two intensities of light.

Really a great design! I would like to see those shadows by 48 LEDs on the ceiling.

Hello, on this link I share the full album of lamp, in the last pictures you can see the effect of the LEDs without the frosted glass.
