The prototype which you see on the attached photos contains around 300 selected LEDs.
Apart from that one there are also two smaller versions with 150 LEDs and 90 LEDs available.
All versions are highly limited:
Collection of light 300: Edition of 3 (51cm x 100cm x 7cm) £5000

For the 90 and 150 version we refurbished and reused original 70 year old insect-collection drawers from the Museum of Natural History Stockholm (Naturhistoriska Museet).

Here is the latest project by Human Since 1982 : “Collection of light” is simply a collection of LEDs which together constitute a lamp in itself. The aim is to create an aura of a real collection (similar to a collection of insects) and expose each illuminant as a worthy industrial product. The LEDs are all labeled (e.g. name, size and color temperature) and arranged in a specific order to accomplish harmonic light.” The prototype is currently exhibited at Phillips de Pury in London.
