Like the La Melle Lampshade, the Spread Light, by London-based designer, Jeongwon Ji, is a series of dynamic ceiling pendant lamps which allow the user to engage with its structure and the light intensity. Each pendant consists of tentacular extensions made of hinged Perspex pieces, which reminded me of the daddy longlegs when the skeletal frames are unfolded.
The mechanical structure of Spread Light consists of a certain numbers of straight or curvy lines of pieces. Due to these units, the organic forms of Spread Light can be more exaggerated while in motion.
