Innermost Asteroid Plastic Table Light
Asteroid plastic is a faceted roto-moulded pendant and table light designed by Koray Ozgen for innermost. This is a unique form in which no two of the twenty-four individual faces are the same and no two edge lengths equal. In clusters, this creates the illusion of many different unique forms, when there is only one. Asteroid comes in both glass & plastic options, with the plastic version suitable for temporary outdoor use
The Asteroid Petrol was launched to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the product in 2015 and has a dichroic paint finish that flips colour from surface to surface as you alter your viewing angle. The design was originally created by Koray Ozgen as a vase that could stand on different surfaces and later adapted very skillfully into a lighting concept by the Ozgen studio and is also available in glass as a pendant or table light.

The Brand: Innermost’s rebellious approach to lighting and furniture comes from a shared anarchic pursuit of design freedom, a belief that you have to embrace the absurd in order to innovate. So innermost has innovation and a little absurdity at it’s core; working with designers from all corners of the globe to create beautifully unique products of the absolute highest quality, since 1999.
