Shylight by Design Drift is a series of lamps that bloom.
About the project:
Shylight is a light hidden in a cocoon. It is based on the natural process by which flowers attract and repel pollen-gathering bees. It falls out of its ëcocoon, opens its petaals and floats down to show all its splendor. At the slightest danger Shylight flips up and retreats into its shell.
You can see it in all its kinetic splendor in this video:
