How about this for a super cool design: A light that opens up like a flower..and closes again.
It’s the work of the Science Museums Inventor-in-residence, Mark Champkins. Inside the petals are bi-metallic strips – a sandwich of copper and steel. The copper responds to the heat of the bulb by expanding, the steel doesn’t, resulting in the realistic bend.
Whilst I love it, It’s small and I’m not convinced it’s working to it’s true potential..Just imagine it as collection together designed as a blossomed branch huge chandelier..
Or inside a large eye-filling glass pendant: Three in a row over a kitchen island unit…heaven.

At the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam there is a gorgeous installation of flower lights that drop and open — softer petals. I have photos, but this is a better look than my stuff. XO
Wow. Love it.
