As much art as lighting, this suspended sculpture uses shadow and scale to mimic roots and trees inside spaces, recreating a forest effect for home interiors.

Designed by Hilden & Diaz, it was “partly inspired by [Darwinist] Ernst Haeckel’s (1834-1919) detailed plots from nature” and “is mirrored around it’s horizontal central axis and forms a circle 360 degrees around the light source.”

When not illuminated, the object at the center of the projection is attractive yet relatively small and unremarkable, making it a source of not just light but also surprise when it is turned on.

Though originally developed as a one-off, thanks to overwhelming positive feedback, the designers are now also planning to put the project up on Kickstarter to fund further development and deployment.
