New York based designer Ron Gilard was inspired by human piercings when he designed the stunning Wall piercing project, a part of the Soft Architecture Collection by Flos, an italian company that developes and design innovative and high end lighting products and projects for the consumer market and the architecture sector.
Wall piercing has rightfully won several international design awards, such as the Wallpaper Design Awards and Elle Deco International Design Awards. First introduced in Milan last fall at Salone del Mobile, it was recently succesfully showcased at the Nordic Light and Furniture Fair in Stockholm a few weeks ago, and an installation is currently on display at the Design Museum in London until August. It is nominated for the Brit Insurance Designs of the Year by said museum. The winner will be announced on March 15th.
Multiple units of the lamp, which has colour changing LED light, can be linked together creating a beautiful pattern of light and shadow on the wall.
