Tomorrow's Fossils In A Meteor Floor Lamp!

Some of the plastic parts in the Fossili Modern Meteore Floor Light may not break down for thousands of years.  Will these parts, chosen carefully by Italian designer Massimilano Adami, be tomorrow's fossils? Whether or not they are, the Fossili Meteore lamp puts on quite a show!

The Fossili Meteore light is a masterful modern design that 'reflects' the materials popular in western culture today. Various recycled parts are used as supports for the lamp or to color the underlying source of color.

The lamps shine through the plastic pieces, which are embedded in a polyurethane foam.  The lights sense when natural light is diminishing in the environment and begin to flash.  Lamps can flash individually, or they can all come on at the same time.  When the Fossil Meteore is turned off, the polyurethane retains its luminescence for a few seconds. All the action of a meteor!
