Seattle and Amsterdam based design firm Graypants has released a new lighting collection entitled Murmurations

The lights are based on the avian phenomenon of flocking birds and are designed to mimic this spectacle through dynamic installations. At the basis of the design is each individual pendant light that is connected to other members of the ‘flock’ creating varying compositions from different viewpoints.

Murmurations as a bespoke installation

Re-purposed cardboard is used as the material for the three-dimensional forms allowing the LED system to illuminate certain portions of individual lights.

Detailing of the moa pendant

The lights are available in individual and standardised collections or as bespoke installations, offering designers a range of options to illuminate a variety of interiors. The pendants are named after the moa, an extinct, flightless bird that once inhabited New Zealand, as the firm wanted to give it an opportunity to soar.
