Richard Rogers Designs Maantis Light Fixture with LEDs

Architect Richard Rogers was inspired by " the iridescent glow of deep-sea creatures. The natural evolution of these creatures has led to them being able to emit a light energy which derives from their structure and metabolism." It has flourescent light as the main source, diffused so that light spillage is minimized. However even when it is turned off it glows from ambient light and from the low-level LED lights. Toss in an optional spot for highlighting with movement sensors so that it only goes on when someone enters the room, and its not just a light fixture but a flexible, changeable lighting creature. ::Richard Rogers via ::Azure
