Technology has enabled lighting design to move beyond the lightbulb, facilitating the creation of pieces like this infinity symbol light. Embedded with LEDs, this pendant lamp assumes a graceful sculptural shape, emitting rays from its entire underside.

Made from ceramic material, the ceiling light comprises a pair of overlapping ellipses that hold a bright direct source in the center. This can be used when intense and focused illumination is required for activities like reading. Alternatively, Markus Kurkowski's award-winning Sphere light can be switched into a more diffuse mode, casting a gentle glow that spreads across its surface. The full effect is ambient and ethereal, suggesting the beauty of the symbolism behind the infinity symbol light's design.
