Lamp, Blush, 2017

This is a Lamp. It was manufactured by Flos. It is dated 2017. Its medium is led strip, dichroic glass.

"The quality of light cannot solely be measured through its intensity.” With Blush, Studio Formafantasma proposes a solution to the lack of color saturation in winter light. Made from a simple LED strip and a piece of dichroic glass, the lamp projects brightly-tinted reflections on the walls.

It is credited Courtesy of Flos.

This object was previously on display as a part of the exhibition Saturated: The Allure and Science of Color.
