Math Made Pretty

If the shape looks familiar (maybe even scary!), it’s because the Paraboloid Lamp takes the striking shape of the hyperbolic geometric surface you probably saw in your algebra classes. A single globe is nestled in the center of a saddle-like grid of skew lines, creating a diffused glow that moves with the elegant curvature of the structure and peeks through the rhomboidal spaces. The version pictured here teeters on a solid base but flipped it might make an interesting pendant centerpiece.
