Does This Lamp Have Balls, Or What?

 

Biomimicry is the celebration of nature in every sense -- a philosophy, a perspective, a practice... that recognizes nature knows best.

In this century of natural inspiration, every field from bioengineering to interior design is celebrating nature. Here's a perfect example from the field of interior design that really epitomizes man's love of nature. The lamp, by Russian designer Dima Loginoff, is called, simply, Male.

 

    

 

A hanging lamp, Male, is designed to be made in a thin natural fiber that breathes.  The texture (veins) could be set into the fiber material  via a maché technique.  Loginoff said that the design could also be manufactured in a sustainable plastic. 

Inside the panels are two energy-saving lamps that light up the entirety of the Male shape.

Being the fearless interviewer that I am, I asked Gospondin Loginoff if he used a live model to design his lamp, and he replied that he designed the lamp from his imagination and a lot of laughter! 

"What inspired you to create Male?" I asked.  Then, Loginoff told me, very politely, to use my own imagination!
