Light from Cracked egg shells looks fascinating this is the whole reason Igor Munich designed the cracked egg shells.Initially

introduced as ceramic table lamps in 1996 has inspired a whole new Art form.Anyone can enter the massive oval egg and look

up for the beauty of the design.The egg shaped structures are all set to be built in at art park in inhotim ,Brazil.Igor said while

exhibiting the egg shells at Milan Desing week that: “The egg shape, perfect and beautiful, is a recurring element in my work.

In fact, there’s a direct connection to Milan: the egg in Piero della Francesca’s Montefeltro altarpiece, belonging to the Pina-

coteca di Brera, holds a particular fascination for me. However, for me the egg had to be flawed: it is broken, and light emer-ges

from the cracks.”
