For the Biennale Internationale Design Saint-Etienne 2015 we created several light installations and sculptures for the Musée de la Mine in St. Etienne, to show how light can be controlled to create beautiful patterns that tell us the story of light, colours, shadows and reflections.
Light is something we all think we understand. It can be white, it can be coloured, it is bright, can be reflected and casts shadows. With our ‘Gradient’ installation we wanted to show how colours and light blends.
Colours are seen when light reflects. With ‘Reflections’ our goal was to show how light reflects by trapping it inside different shapes. Catching the light and forcing it into a shape amplifies the reflection as it has nowhere to go.
The Dotted Lamp uses the LED strip to show that it can be transformed into a delightful, simple and elegant lamp. In this case the design was inspired by the colourful an freely floating, dreamy jellyfish, a marvel of nature.
