Turbine-Inspired Lighting

Rich Brilliant Willing's Delta Lamp Collection is Industrial-Looking

— August 28, 2011 — Art & Design
The only thing that could make the Delta lamp collection better is if it was actually powered by the turbines it was inspired by. Of course, that would be entirely up the owners, yet perhaps they will be influenced by the clean, structured lines of these light fixtures to fork up some more cash to do the eco-inspired lighting even more justice than simply giving it a home.

Designed by Rich Brilliant Willing, the Delta lamp collection boasts shapes that are reminiscent of the vents and fans found on roofs. Who knew that their strong and industrial presence would be so becoming hanging from a ceiling or resting on floors and tables? Instead of being made from heavy metal, the Delta lamp is wrapped in fabric in a way that looks like aluminum.
