I find mirrors fascinating and I consider them more than just an object of vanity for men and especially women. Many scientists have studied mirrors and their use in optical phenomena, one of the first ones being Archimedes. Stories say that Archimedes even used very large mirrors to focus the sunlight and set fire on the sails of the enemy Roman fleet. Historians have not found out any proof that this was true or not, but the story suggests at least the ancient preoccupation for the study of mirrors. Mirrors were also used in spreading light since the time of the famous lighthouse in Alexandria. Well, the same principle is used this time in building this Candela Cube Interesting Lamp that is modern and nice looking and very interesting as design.
Basically this is a table lamp and it uses an incandescent 25W bulb (that is not included in the price) that is placed inside a cube that has mirrors on the interior walls and which spreads the light through the two transparent faces remaining. The visual effect is amazing, as you can see the reflection of the light bulb and also of the light cast and the golden edges of the cube only enhance the impact. The table lamp is very interesting and available on MomaStore for $145.
