Zeppelin Light by Marcel Wanders for Flos

Zeppelin is part of the Cocoon range from Flos developed from an original idea by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni. This Zeppelin edition by Marcel Wanders consists of a white powder coated, electro-welded steel frame and polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) injection moulded candles with a transparent finish. The outer shell holds in the light and creates a large glow, making it very different to the traditional ceiling lamp. Having the light within the white translucent casing reminds me of a haunted house, where the lights are covered with cobwebs.
