The Faceted tactile Light is a tactile and sensory experience of using traditional materials and re contextualizing them exploiting their inherent qualities. Metal sheets are first cut and then linked together or stitched together piece by piece meticulously to form a mosaic of repetitive cellular structure that results in to a tessellated geometrical form. Light permeates facets where they have been linked and have stretched due to tessellations revealing geometrical lines of construction. The Faceted dome lights are based on Buckminster Fuller’s geodesic dome. The Faceted Chandelier draws from a modular structure, which allows for the construction of larger structure for public spaces. The design involves integrating material integrity and longevity using basic construction principles and applications to find new means of expression. Over a period of time the metal develops a natural patina that adds to the natural look and glow of the ambient light. Using traditional handicraft techniques with references to strong geometrical construction principles, the entire collection is produced by hand, borrowing from the legacy of rich Indian handicrafts.


Materials: Available in brass, copper, bronze, german silver and PVC.


Faceted Tactile Light Series were exhibited at London Design Festival, 2012, Interieur Design Biennale, Belgium, Milan Design Week 2013 and 2014. Avni Sejpal received the coveted ‘A Design Award 2013’ for the Faceted Tactile Light Collection.
