A French designer named Kei Yamamoto has created this uber LED lamp which is 20 times the size of a normal LED bulb. He writes:

Not only does the product show the beauty of the LED structure, but it also creates a special visual effect on the ceiling, 12 LED bulbs are refracted through the Acrylic glass lens to generate this pattern. Materials: Aluminum, Acrylic glass, LEDs.

This is a one-off piece o’ art, but man, I’d buy a commercial lamp like this…

    Oh, hell yeah!

    The metal bits would be easy to MAKE. Now, making the clearcast mould for the plastic part, that’s the hard-ish part.

    Really, this is primo MAKER material.
