Modular Light

Lighting object / 2008

Light and shadow combine into ModularLight. What characterises the light objects, which are made of sheet metal, is their play with the surrounding room.

Depending on light beam and angles, the light objects change the room and invite the user to shape it. In the initial position the light appears to be trapped within its geometrical cladding.

However, turning and tilting the surfaces breaks the light space open, and releases it into freedom. Where previously sharp lines forced their way past the edges, smooth light surfaces now flood the room. Depending on the light beam one can discover ever new structures and shadings.

It’s a minimalistic yet fascinating interplay of the movable metal surfaces, which the user can give the element light a shape with. The boundary between product and sculpture dissolves.
