Indoors & Outdoors
Sacred people may be represented with a halo in the shape of a circular light, or flames in Asian art, around the head or around the entire body in religious art from Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam and among other religions. The term Aureola is generally associated with the disc of light that surrounds the head of holy figures in Romance languages, and is known in English as Halo or Nimbus.
As a result, we felt it would be a wonderful source of inspiration for transforming iconographic halos and circular glows into physical forms. We chose to make a lamp that we accept a circular glow context as a light source. We began with a circular light shape as the basis of the form, but gravity and physical laws require that the lamp touch the surface.
We also developed two minimalist legs that were primarily focused on the center of gravity. As a result, the lamp’s complete unbroken shape has been self-balanced. Also, the balance of the design represents the context of humanity’s harmony with faiths, whether you believe in them or not.
