Mercury 7 Pendant Luminaire

On February 20, 1962, John Glenn was the first American to orbit Earth with the space-capsule “Friendship 7” as part of Project Mercury, Nasa’s first human spaceflight program. Celebrating the 50th anniversary of this event, we are bringing the fascination of space travel into your own home with the two-year development project called “Mercury” Pendant Luminaire. Based on LED technology, the Mercury transforms its hanging space with one flick of a finger into your personal orbit lounge. Touching the Mercury’s shade changes the light mode from indirect to direct and the translucent heat-shield creates a bright yet very pleasant illumination. Copyright StudioFaubel-2012
