By combining two distinctly different materials (steel & wood) we have collaborated with Miniforms to create a series of conical pendant lights that reveal the inner grains of the beech wood top by carving into the cone in order to attain a three dimensional pendant that provides multiple profiles depending on its viewing angle.
Perhaps, Philips suggests, the time has come to look beyond electrically dependent alternatives to a biological source of light: bacteria. That’s the idea behind the Dutch electronics company’s Bio-Light concept, which harnesses the light generated by bioluminescent microorganisms–a disinterested move by a company in the business of making all sorts of light bulbs.
What John was trying to do in his work was push that limit to create a sense of strain in the wood’s gesture. Conceptually, he was trying to allow beauty to be the product of strain. recariousness, harmony, balance, stress, and fluidity are some of the words he uses to describe his aesthetic. His furniture and lamps are made up of bent wood, and done so in such a way that no two are the same.
The shade is cast in white china clay, sourced from Matauri bay, New Zealand. Produced in batches of 100. Each batch is Unique. The Segment shade is cast from a simple mould created from eleven individual wedge-shaped plaster segments. When initially assembled together the segments create a closed circle, resembling a cake sliced into eleven even pieces.
The Light sculpture Forms in Nature resembles Darwinist Ernst Haeckel’s drawings. Using a simple action, such as intensifying the brightness at the center of the artwork, the light transforms the space and adds character, as the work throws oversized shadows onto walls and ceilings in the space in which it hangs.
Using the mechanical and structural qualities of pleats to create strange and large self-supporting volumes, the wrinkled Tyvek® bodies filter light to create soft illuminations. Conceived in two different sizes, the hanging modules also implement various printed patterns to complement the corrugated iron base colorway.
