On show in the Milan Design Week 2015: The Radiolaria, a series of 11 lamps made of 3D-knitted textile with glow-in-the-dark effect, inspired by microscopic organisms and the phenomenon of bioluminescence.

To be seen at Li Edelkoort’s Gathering in Ventura Lambrate, and The Natural Circle in Cascina Cuccagna.

When the light is switched off, the Radiolaria leave a mysterious green afterglow. Each lamp has a different shape, but they’re all equally rotund and strangely scaleless. Are they bacteria? Plancton? Plant seeds? Or maybe planets? More.

The Radiolaria are now available! More here.
