If watching last night’s supermoon lunar eclipse stirred something deep inside you, read on. For those of you who look up into the night sky and want nothing more than to create the same ambience in your home, look no further. The Luna is here to answer your wildest hopes and dreams. With the development of an incredibly realistic moon lamp, Acorn Studio has brought together art, fantasy, and our inner astronaut into one beautiful piece of home decor. And through their IndieGoGo campaign, you can own one of these creations yourself. But be warned, they’re selling out fast, with all early bird specials already gone. But still, $75 to $875 (alright, the higher end of the spectrum is a bit pricey) seems a reasonable price to pay when you consider that you’re bringing the moon into your home.
The lamp, which is water-, heat-, and crash-resistant, as well as being luminosity adjustable, comes in seven different sizes, ranging from 3.2 to 23.6 inches in diameter. Made mainly from glass fiber and nontoxic latex, the lamp can either be hung from your ceiling or strategically placed on a stand in a room. Each lamp — which seeks to “unveil the potential of a space” by way of unconventional decoration — is handmade, ensuring that no two Lunas are the same.
Already, the project has raised $464,538, far surpassing its original goal of just $40,000. 2,346 people have pledged their support over the last 27 days, and still, the campaign is less than 50 percent of the way to its end date — you have until Oct. 31 to get in on the fun. And now that the Acorn Studio team has exceeded even its most ambitious funding expectations, it has promised backers “secret accessories” that “match perfectly with Luna.” Could a whole Milky Way be in the works?
The Luna lamps are expected to be produced at the end of 2015, with the first batch of deliveries going out in March of 2016. So if you can wait just a few more months, you may be able to bring the night sky home with you and quite literally sleep under the moon.
