Superloon by Jasper Morrison: the Moon and the Truth

There are many excellent examples of design catching SEEN’s eye at the moment – appropriately enough for the London Design Festival – and none more eye-catching than the stunning Superloon light, an EDIDA 2016 award-winner, by Jasper Morrison.

There are many excellent examples of design catching SEEN’s eye at the moment – appropriately enough for the London Design Festival – and none more eye-catching than the stunning Superloon light, an EDIDA 2016 award-winner, by Jasper Morrison.

Utilising a new sort of LED technology, a ring of LED lights sends light sideways into the edge of a flat composite disk. When lit, the piece resembles the moon in all its luminous glory. Further, the light can be rotated 360 degrees on its own axis so that it may be used as ambient light, or as a reading light.

Resting on a tripod, the Superloon has a built-in optical sensor that allows the light to dim, and also increase or decrease in colour warmth, using the very latest Warm Tone Dimming technology.

In an age dominated by the harsh blue light of phones and screens, the Superloon offers us a truly restful experience that connects us with nature and folklore. As the Buddha said, ‘three things cannot long be hidden; the sun, the moon and the truth.’
