illustri.



The Illustri doesn't look like a light so much as a bizarre deepsea creature that heaved its bulk out of the ocean before collapsing on your living room floor. To go along with the collapsed-on-the-floor version, there is a dripping-from-a-lamp-pole one and a hanging-off-the-ceiling variety. No idea what it's made out of (ocean junk maybe?) but it seems to cost 655 euros. The designer is Hans Heisz.

it says on the product page that it is made from Nomex.

Harnessing thousands of volts in a transformer to ensure that essential services like schools and hospitals have the power to run day and night. Helping engines and generators keep their cool in hot, aggressive environments, so expensive downtime and maintenance costs are avoided. Protecting firefighters as they rush into burning buildings to save the lives of those who may be trapped inside.

Sounds like a lot to accomplish when the heat's on? For NOMEX®, it's all in a day's work. Whether manufactured into protective apparel, electrical insulation or industrial filters, NOMEX® brand fibers ensure that those who rely on it perform to their fullest potential in the most extreme conditions imaginable.
