Ripples

The object is a duble-faced light fixture. Basically two glass lids, that have the same shape in both vertical and horizontal sections, come together to shut on an oversized bronzed ring which functions as a handle. The light fixture minimal length (12-15cm for each glass lid and 2cm for the bronze ring) so appart from a main hangning light fixture it can be hung on the wall- it can be considered an one dimensional object, if we were to exadurate. The diameter of each circle is 40cm and that of the ring is 50cm.

The originality of the construction is that the glass lids can be covered with other transparent materials with the same section such as tinted glass or a variety of opaque materials such as fabric, cork, matel etc. This gives the object a front and back side and the function can be transformed from a light fixture to a simple ornament. This gives the owner the chance to change the mood whenever they find fit.

From an aesthetic point of view, the object is elegant, it uses transparent and “clean” materials, and the shape initiates a game with the subconscious through a motive that we allcome across each day. The concentric circles, which we find throughout nature but also in the sciences, create a pleasant scenograhy, which can make a very interesting contrast with the use of a share coloured tinted glass.
