We’ve all heard of “mood lighting” – a warm, glowing aura that helps you relax and unwind. The mood lighting of Przmek Krawczynski (aka Calabarte) however, is of an altogether different hue – and one that is sure to blow your mind.
Krawczynski is a man who understands the effect that light can have on the human mind. As you can see from the beautiful lamps he creates for a living, this artist knows how to exploit light’s ability to calm, mesmerize and amaze.
And incredibly, these mind-bogglingly ornate objects are created from the gourd fruit – a plant which has a naturally hard shell. This lamp, completed in May 2011, is made of a type of Senegali gourd called calabash. Which is, presumably, why Krawczynski has chosen the name Calabarte to work under.
