Candlelight by LED?

Love the atmosphere created by a real flame indoors without the associated dangers?  Well take a look at Mori London’s pair of handmade glass lamps.

Created by Mori London designer and founder Moritz Waldemeyer, the two pieces are titled ‘Midnight Oil’ and ‘Eternal Flame’

Mori-London-4

Made with a small matrix of low temperature LEDs, which have been programmed to flicker and dance like a real candle. The technology is relatively simple and has the wonderful effect of fooling the eye into believing there’s a real flame inside.

The London Design Festival is an annual event, held to celebrate and promote London as the design capital of the world and as the gateway to the international creative community. The next Festival will be held 17-25 September 2016.

What is the London Design Festival?

The London Design Festival was conceived by Sir John Sorrell and Ben Evans. Building on London’s existing design activity, their concept was to create an annual event that would promote the city’s creativity, drawing in the country’s greatest thinkers, practitioners, retailers and educators to a deliver an unmissable celebration of design.
Festival events are staged in up to 400 different venues across the city. Check individual event listings for details. The Festival’s hub is at the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A), which provides a good starting point from which to explore the Festival.
