Cosmic Rock is a composite material that consists of salt and epoxy resin. It can be cast or poured, enabling the creation of both simple and complex forms. Cosmic Rock is semi-transparent, the amount of light that passes through is controlled by the depth of the material. Three prototypes have been developed using the material, two are lighting products that contain LEDs, which are cast inside the material, the other is a panel. The material defuses the light brilliantly and gives off a beautiful warm glow; the lights have a ring of light around them, which is reminiscent of a planet, moon or star.
