Dragonfly.MGX pendant light by WertelOberfell Platform

by Maria Konou

The Dragonfly.MGX pendant light draws inspiration from the curved honeycomb structure of insect eyes and their optical qualities.

From WertelOberfell:

The fascination for us lies within its complex three dimensional array of photoreceptor cells or in this case light emitting cells.
Dragonfly.MGX is taking functional requirements like glare shielding and direct/indirect light into consideration. Therefore the skin is closed on the upper cells and gradually opens up towards the lower part to let more light pass through. It utilizes a standard size light bulb e.g. an energy saving ligh bulb E27, thus making it a fully functional pendant light.

Dragonfly.MGX is made in Epoxy and is produced with 3D printing technology. This process becomes more and more interesting for mass production. It is available in two colours – Terra Cotta and Amber. The diameter of the shade is 30cm and the height is 20cm.
