Artemide Calipso Suspension Lamp
The unique honeycomb grill of Calipso was generated by feeding a photo of the moon into an image-based algorithm found on a seemingly extinct computer. A fractal is thus created: an object that is repeated in its form in the same way on different scales, and thus enlarging any part of it to obtain a figure similar to the original. Lots of small circles with varying diameters are arranged side by side with precision to produce an organic set displaying the irregular beauty of nature.
