A number of new technologies do distance us from the objects within our homes, yet products like the Total Eclipse Lamp serve to encourage and maintain some intimate interaction with them. Designed by Siv Lier, the wall-mounted light fixture has a modifiable intensity that requires manual adjustment.
A round diffuser made from translucent material is installed over the brilliant lightbulb. In full view, the circle glows like the warm setting sun. However, the wall lamp is completed with its opaque blue cover, behaving much like the passing moon as it blocks some of the beams behind it.
Simply shift this lunar lampshade to obstruct as much or as little of the luminous surface as you wish, establishing your desired intensity and ambiance with the Total Eclipse Lamp.
