Crystal Ball-Like Lighting
The Sphere Light by Katja Pettersson is Fit for a Fortune Teller

The Sphere Light might not tell people’s fortunes, but it does offer “a closer look at the phenomena of illumination itself, as seen refracted through a perfect circle,” as noted by Fast Co. Design. Resting on top of a simple columnar base made of cloudy white plastic that houses an LED, the solid glass orb impressively amplifies the weak light source.

Presented as part of Folkform’s recent exhibition at Gallery Kleerup, the Sphere Light was created by Swedish designer Katja Pettersson. As visually striking and technologically current as the Sphere Light is, the concept behind it is age-old. According to Fast Co. Design, “Centuries ago, people took advantage of the same kind of mechanics using a round bowl of water to focus a candle’s brightness after the sun went down.”
