A simple wood light from Canada is inspired by the planets.

We first posted on the Meridian Light several years ago; it's refreshing to return to a product and find that the design is equally (if not more) appealing than it was first time round. Designed by Vancouver-based Propellor Design, the Meridian light "is a simple expression of form and implied movement, like the paths of electrons around a nucleus or planets around a sun."

Above: The Meridian Light is made from strips of either black walnut (shown here) or birch veneer; $520 at Supermarket.

Above: The pendant comes in five sizes, ranging from 16 inches in diameter to 42 inches. Shown in birch veneer above.
