Light Fixtures – Physical or Phantom

Light Fixtures – Physical or Phantom
January 5, 2012 SNH Editorial Team

We all have light fixtures in our homes…so why not have one where parts appear but do not physically exist?!  They exist only as a holographic image.

If you are interested in finding something unconventional or a bit unusual for your home, consider this light fixture named appropriately “Wo bist Du Edison…? which translates as “where are you Edison…?”

This 18” wide x 21” tall light makes a statement above any dining room table.  It was designed by Ingo Maurer in 1997.

His work has been shown extensively in museums around the world including the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Stedelijk in  Amsterdan and the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.

The actual light source is a halogen bulb providing great light to boot.  This fun does not come inexpensively unfortunately.  “Wo bist Du Edison…?” retails for around $7,000 – making it a rather special Holiday Gift.
