This amazing Moon light is by Japanese designer Nosigner (Eisuke Tachikawa), in response to the March 11 earthquake and tsunami. It’s a beautiful piece, I would LOVE to own one.
Conceived by Japanese designer Nosigner as a symbol of hope after the earthquake and tsunami left Japan with almost none to be had, the Moon light is an accurate rendering of our only natural satellite.
Nosigner said after the twin disasters struck, many Japanese prayed to the ‘super moon’, the biggest full moon in a cycle of 18 years. “‘The Moon’ is the light of our hope,” the designer wrote on his blog.
To mould each crevice and scar on the moon’s surface accurately, Nosigner collected 3D topographical data from the lunar orbiter Kaguya.
