The Tree, Installation für die Bodegas Vega Sicilia Weinbaugebiet Ribera del Duero, 2013 Der Baum ist Teil eines Lichtkonzepts für die Bodegas Vega Sicilia. Der Auftraggeber wünschte eine Installation in der Nähe der Straße, die zum Symbol für die Winzerei werden soll. Der Baum aus Corten-Stahl ist über acht Meter hoch und hat einen Durchmesser von fünf bis sechs Metern. An den ‚Ästen’ hängen mehrere leicht gebogene Elemente, die an ein Mobile erinnern und sich im Wind leicht bewegen.

Light-Space Modulator Three moveable metal and/or glass structures arranged on a rotating disc form the core of the Light-Space Modulator. However, it only develops its impact in a darkened space, such as the “cubic box” envisioned by Moholy-Nagy, where it produces spectacular shadow formations in an interplay with coloured and white light. The kinetic sculpture was first displayed in 1930 as part of the German contribution to the Deutscher Werkbund (German Work Federation) exhibition in Paris. That same year, its effects were the subject of the film Lichtspiel Schwarz-Weiß-Grau (Light Play Black-White-Grey), which was directed by Moholy-Nagy. In 1931, the work, also known as Light Prop for an Electric Stage, was to be exhibited in the planned but never realised installation Raum der Gegenwart (Room of the Present Day) in the Provinzialmuseum, Hanover.

Studio Drift: Shylight The installation at the Rijksmuseum can be seen as a performative sculpture that unites the movement of industrial motors with silk chalice structures into a natural choreography. Even from the street, outside of the museum, it is possible to behold the graceful movements of the Shylights: the silk sculptures are visible through the windows of the Rijksmuseum. Studio Drift, Shylight. View of the installation at the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam Shylight is inspired by a highly evolved natural mechanism called “nyctinasty”. It regulates that certain types of flowers close at night, for self-defense and to conserve their resources.

Original Creators: Minimalist Light Sculptor Dan Flavin © 2012 Stephen Flavin/Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York. Each week we pay homage to a select “Original Creator”—an iconic artist from days gone by whose work influences and informs today’s creators. These are artists who were innovative and revolutionary in their fields. Naomi Paul: Light / Shade Following the OMI Pendant, Naomi Paul launches at London Design Festival the first three pieces in her new lighting collection Light/Shade. The silhouette of Gluck pendant design has evolved, making way for V2 Gluck pendant, an open shade with direct light source. When lit, the characteristic openwork of the handcrafted crocheted surface gives the entire shade an effervescent glow ideal for dining tables and overhead lighting.

TRACE LAMP / mercurybureau Trace Lamp extends from floor to ceiling, using gravity to pull the lamp's thin lines into an open pyramid. An acrylic base supports the socket and bulb, while a small acrylic disc gathers the converging cords into a single line extending to the ceiling. Available in white/black, white/blue, and black/black, Trace Lamp works well as a single lamp and in clusters. LUUM — Contemporary lighting design Flame Pollen Bangle
