Moons of Jupiter lighting collection by Ira Rozhavsky

February 18th, 2014 by retail design blog

Using a unique manufacturing process that allows to produce a variety of complex 3D shapes of glass without using heat, Tel Aviv based designer Ira Rozhavsky creates lighting fixtures of sensual forms and mesmerizing light. The versatility that this process enables turns each lamp’s manufacturing into a work of a sculptor, integrating the artistic with the precise and functional.

One of the characteristics of tempered glass is its shattering into a million of little pieces. This shattering creates beautiful, varied patterns, that brings to mind the gentleness and the fragility of a snowflake, the beauty and the complexity of biological cells. By utilizing tempered glass’ breakage, each lamp produced individually in a handmade process, resulting in a delicate, one of a kind morphology.

“Moons of Jupiter”, Rozhavsky’s latest lighting collection, combines broken tempered glass with a clear polymer, that creates together a unique organic construction. The broken glass is molded around a CNC form to create a precise shape for the lighting bulbs, while the “free wings” around painstakingly crafted by hand.

When lit, the light reflections through the individually broken pieces of glass shine from within, resulting in a magical experience for the viewer. When turned off, the light and fluid reflections of the surroundings dances on the surface, creating a light-“mosaic-like” effect. Different angles reveal constantly changing perspectives of organic forms. “Moons of Jupiter” collection is an intriguing combination of texture and structure, of light and shade, of product design and art.
