The 1969 moon landing represents one of humankind’s greatest achievements, and DeskX is making it even easier to celebrate this milestone of space exploration. Their latest design called Lunar Surface is the perfect accessory if you're captivated by Earth’s satellite and wish you could have a piece of it in your home. The Hong Kong-based designers have created a model of the moon using data from NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter; the result looks so realistic that you’d think it was really from outer space.
The Lunar Surface is a slab with a textured top that evokes the rocky, uneven terrain found on the moon. Crafted from jewelry-grade concrete, it’s hand-finished and presented on a space-grade aluminum base. This makes it a stunning addition to any home decor or office. The sleek design can fit on a desk, or it can be hung on the wall like a work of art. To highlight its cratered surface, DeskX recommends shining it under a direct light source.
The Lunar Surface is available in two sizes: a “large” size measuring 7×7 inches and a “regular” size measuring about 4×4 inches. Pre-order yours by visiting their Kickstarter. And if you love this space-inspired project, be sure to check out their other stunning creations featuring the solar system made using gemstones.
