The glowing orb

The Nebula Hive, designed by British sculpture artist Ivan Black, is a traditional chandelier for the 21st century. Hand-polished and nickel-plated, the Nebula has an integrated motor that initiates bursts of energy, which guides a playful and hypnotic performance of illuminated and outstretched brass arms. As the mechanical energy dissipates, the Nebula Hive continues to morph into shapes reminiscent of a double helix or a distant celestial orb, before settling back into its lustrous original state. It connects to a proprietary iOS app to control luminosity, speed, direction, and patterns of rotation with the swipe of a finger; the app is also equipped with a programme-setting function.
