As strange as it is at first glance, it’s actually a quite awesome idea — adapt your architecture to have some form AND function. Meet the Ceiling Light, from Russian designer Ð”Ð¼Ð¸Ñ‚Ñ€Ð¸Ð¹ ÐšÑƒÐ»ÑÐµÐ², or Dimitry Kulyev, for those of us who don’t speak Russian very well (or at all, like me — well, I learned how to swear in Russian, of course):
Dimitri’s Ceiling Light actually incorporates the concept of recessed illumination, which provides a nice indirect source of light for a room. He goes a bit further in this design by adding a fluorescent tube into the “luminaire.” What do you think about this? I’m not a fan of un-diffused fluorescent, as that stuff gives me a wicked headache, but I like the idea of Dimitri’s lamp, period! I have to say that I think he really tackled every element of the typical A-Lamp, all the way down to the shiny applique on the ceiling to represent the base. Brilliant work, man!
