Named after 19th-century physicist and optics pioneer Augustin-Jean Fresnel, Sean Augustine March’s Fresnel Lamps are a sight to behold.
Made from dichroic glass, LEDs pass through metal particles embedded in the glass of the lamp’s double-box construction. The lamps come in two sizes, Major (10″ cube) and Minor (5″ cube), and are available for purchase through March’s website.
If the explanation above didn’t make sense, perhaps a gallery and some video would help do these functional sculptures justice. For more, be sure to check out Sean’s work on Instagram.[via reddit]
