veronika-gombert-mothership-0

A beautiful design from German-born designer Veronika Gombert, Mothership is a lamp like none other, utilizing multiple independently hung light sources (LED, of course) that can be either removed and allowed to hang from the main “ship” of the design, or they can be placed in the bowl of the lamp itself, creating a quiet and romantic atmosphere.

From Veronika’s website on the Mothership:

A suspended LED lamp which can be adapted by hand to different daily life situations. The lamp is constructed to give light for big tables over 1,80m. For the fast breakfast in the morning, the homework after lunch, a banquet or giving the right atmosphere for a dinner for two. It consists of a static fixed lighting bowl, made in Acrylic it’s white to light translucent. The 8 LED light bulbs can be freely moved and fixed with a small hook anywhere at the edge of the lighting bowl. The hook also blocks the cable. By simply lifting the bulb, the cable can be adjusted in hight. There are endless possibilities for lightening.

A Tour of ETC’s Amazing Factory – Also Known as “The Mothership”

While I was in Middleton this last weekend for the ETC Summer Camp, I was lucky enough to get a grand tour of the place where all Source Fours, Sensor dimmers, ETC consoles, and other ETC lighting lines are created, manufactured, and repaired when necessary.  This was a pretty cool experience, quite frankly!  I have a metric ton of images for you all here – along with some narration for most of them.

*Deep breath*

I’ve put these images into a gallery with descriptions and titles – click on the one on the top left below here and the gallery pages will load up, and you can step through each images by clicking on the icons underneath each large image.  Simplicity!
