Was there an earthquake? Or did time suddenly stop moving? Masters of the optical illusion, Tokyo-based YOY studio have designed SWING – a pendant lamp that, well, appears to swing. The trick is really quite simple. An LED light source is used to illuminate the bulb and an acrylic tube that represents the trace of light. It comes in 3 different sizes depending on how much you want your room to appear to sway.
