Flower-shaped lamp that blooms at night by Constantin Bolimond

This pendant lamp based on a flower by Belarussian designer Constantin Bolimond would open and illuminate when it senses low light.

"The idea came about thanks to flowers that begin to bloom when the sun shines," Bolimond told Dezeen.

Constantin Bolimond's Bloom lamp concept would act in the opposite way to normal flowers.

Instead of unfurling its bud-like cover in sunlight, the lamp's optical sensor would react when it gets dark and cause the petals to gradually spread out as the light decreases.

Different materials and colours could be used to create the six petals, which would act together as a shade and regulate the amount of light dispersed from the small bulb positioned in the centre.

    A very tantalising concept.

      I wonder how many people get that joke. ;)

    But this is just a rendering that claims it does some things. Prototype please. Cannot be so difficult, there are already lights that open with the help of heat and a special metal alloy. Even though he claims this light could be made from only “wood, plastic, recycled paper.” And magic?

    A bit too obvious, in my opinion it’s much more interesting if something magical happens, like in nature. Like the bloom light by Nendo, where the heat of the lamp opens it, no mechanical stuff.
