Reduced forms create fascinating light sculptures, a play with reflection, light and shadow. Formally very clearly sculptural in its effect. The luminaire series, “Shadow”, plays with the effects of light, shadow and reflection. It almost succeeded in squaring the circle again….
Just think of the tea trolley by Alvar Aalto or the marshmallow sofa by George Nelson. The circular surface as a design element exerts a great fascination. The four circular surfaces form a “square” which is both lampshade and base at the same time. When the lamp is on, the circular areas conjure up a beautiful shadow ornament on the floor or stand.
In one of the coloured versions (fluorescent) another aspect comes into play: the light conductivity of Plexiglas, which causes the edges of the Plexiglas to glow in back light. In other words, depending on the daylight situation, the lamp also glows when switched off.
