Product news: German designer Daniel Becker has created a series of wall lamps based on the patterns of crystalline structures.

The LEM wall lamps by Daniel Becker have been constructed using 3D wire frame shapes.

The angular forms are based on studies of symmetry in crystals. The wire frame acts as a base for layers of textiles and foils.

The light can vary from subdued to bright depending on the density of layers and the bulb used.

The lamps are available to purchase on design website Contemporary Components.

Daniel Becker has also designed a set of ceramic tiles that let stoves give off more heat.

Other wall lamp designs include a collection of chandeliers and wall lamps designed by rapper Vanilla Ice and a wall-mounted bedside lamp that swivels in all directions. See more lighting design »

Here's more information from the designer:


The shapes of the series LEM are the first results of the analysis and interpretation of quasicrystals and aperiodic patterns. In chemistry, quasicrystals stand with their aperiodic but still ordered structure for a contradiction to the actually required periodic symmetry of molecules within a crystal.

During the development process, crystalline structures have been constructed and implemented in three-dimensional shapes of fine wire mesh. These shapes are covered with layers of different textiles and foils, thereby creating a play of light which varies in addition depending on the used bulb.

The main intention in the still ongoing design process of LEM is the search for shapes with a very high visual complexity on one hand and a construction which is reduced to the essentially necessary parts on the other.
