Helix is the appropriate name to a spiralling light fixture that may be comparable to a strand of DNA, but is actually inspired by something else entirely. Instead, the visually striking design pays tribute to the Tungsten filament, which is appropriate on so many levels. It's abstract take on such an iconic creation is a beautiful way to keep its memory alive.

Designed by Michael Samoriz, the Helix spiralling light hangs from the ceiling in a fairly long line. Perfect for dining rooms and bar areas, it brings a modern yet whimsical touch to living spaces. What is particularly arresting about the spiralling light is not just its shape, but how that shape changes depending on where a person is standing.
