Can light come from darkness?
This lamp design is exploring the contradictions of light and darkness. How darkness create a room within light, and light within darkness.
The lamp consists of colored acrylic with LEDs as the source of light. When the lamp is turned off it seems completely black, but when the light is turned on the patterns of the lamellas create a new pattern of strips of light.
Constructing the Model
The skyline of Chinese metropolises, and how the buildings shape the night sky with their windows of light, inspired the pattern of the lamellas.
The construction of the lamp resembles the traditional Chinese temple rooftops.
