Manipulating light by moving the light source.
Do we understand what happens when we dim our lights? How can we include dimming as a part of the design? These are some of the questions that triggered the design of Exploded View, a series of lighting objects that incorporate movement as a key element of its design.
By moving the light-source away from, or closer to the lighting object, the intensity of the light can be adapted. After all, the sun never fades; it is the earth that moves closer and further away, causing the light to reflect, change colour, dim or die. Ultimately, the experiment has led to a series of lamps representing different approaches: Cumulus, which dims through layering, Eclipse, which keeps the light contained or sets it free, and Lunar which plays with reflection.
