There is something majestic and calming about stargazing, however unless you reside in a rural area finding a place to see the stars may present a challenge. Living in California, it is easy to see a sunset on a beach yet not so easy to see the evening sky’s stars. If you also enjoy stargazing the Homestar Spa Planterium may be the serene experience you are looking for.
The Homestar Spa Planetarium by Japan’s Sega Toys allows you to ponder the meaning of the stars while relaxing in your bathtub or indoor pool. The floating waterproof light of the Homestar Spa Planetarium can be shown upward to produce a room full of stars or be flipped downward for a Rose Bath or a Deep Blue water setting. The beauty of a sky’s stars can now be observed and enjoyed from the comforts of your own home. Paint your walls with serene constellations while releasing your daily stress.
The Cast Light by Snarkitecture consists of a single long-life LED light bulb within a sort of industrial dreamy cement cave. This solid white gypsum cement cube with a range of forms both reveal and conceal its light at the same time. Hand formed and individually cast, each piece is unique from all others. A single fixture can be used as a table lamp or an accent light, while multiple fixtures can be arranged together to create a larger lighting constellation.
