Budapest based designer duo of Anna Farkas graphic designer and Miklós Batisz interior designer are introducing their Starry Light lamp collection at Tent London this autumn. The collection is based on Anna’s original idea of a lampshade as an art piece, created for the 2500 Watt exhibition (Budapest, 2011), Starry Light is the result of more than one year of product development.
The uniqueness of the lamp lies in its capability of providing local lighting and at the same time projecting the fascinating starry night sky in the room through the drillings of the hemispheric shade. The fascinating lighting effects are created by a LED light source—specially developed for Starry Light lamps—emitting lightbeams of different strength upwards and downwards, thus creating ideal luminosity for an intimate dinner and conjuring the starry sky.
Starry Light lamps are manufactured by hand in different workshops in Budapest. Every part of Starry Light is unique and made of quality materials by skilled craftsmen in cooperation with the designers. The lamp is available in four different colours. Anna’s subtle hand drawn signs on the inner surface of the shade make the constellations easily recognizable. Each and every Starry Light is signed and numbered.
The original Starry Light shades picture the celestial constellations of the Northern Hemisphere’s two equinoxes and solstices. But—if required—custom constellations can be created according to the geographical space, date and time given by the customer, so Starry Light is indeed a unique gift for our loved ones.
