Light Study

I like how the sun creates patterns that constantly change and move around the room. Based on sun cats, I wanted to create evocative and interesting lighting effects.

In order to be able to perceive product design We need a combination of light and darkness – contrasts. With light through objects, I get the opportunity to influence the impression of the entire room. My purpose with the project is to develop my design process and gain a greater understanding of how light can be used. My work has been driven by the question: "How can I create reflections and play with spatiality by lighting objects?" In the process, I have worked experimentally with both light and product design. In my experiments, I melted plastic and glass using different techniques and illuminated them with led, projector and sunlight at different times of the day.

My studies have resulted in three solar mirrors. The sun mirrors can be placed on floors, hung on the wall or from the ceiling to capture sunlight and provide light play on surfaces around it. The light games change during the day depending on the weather and the position of the sun.
