Spectacular Hanging Lamp Illuminates a Room with the Beauty of St. Peter's Basilica

Italian Studio AMeBE pays homage to the stunning architectural beauty of Saint Peter's Basilica by recreating it as a magnificent lamp. The hanging light fixture focuses its attention on the Vatican City's iconic dome, using a hyperrealistic approach to craft a striking likeness. Designers Alessandra Mantovani and Eleonora Barbareschi–the duo behind Studio AMeBE–hand painted the ornate and weathered exterior as well as the religious scenes that line the inside. From certain angles, the miniaturized structure could be the real thing.

The artistic precision and keen attention to detail is immediately apparent on this lamp, so it's no surprise that it's a limited edition piece with only 15 of these fixtures produced. They were recently released during Milan Design Week and made a few rooms more majestic because of it.
