Lumen Umbra - 2017 - Present
Wood, Metal, Light - Various Dimensions
Lumen Umbra are platonic solid shaped sculptures that cast intricate shadows and turn surrounding space into a mesmerizing ambiance of light and darkness. Heavily influenced by math, geometry, science and nature, the laser cut patterns create illusions of form, where the shape of the prism is lost trough the projective translation of light to shadow.
Lumen Umbra, or Light Shadow, invites play and conversation. The lanterns are interactive, they really come to life when interaction happens. The emitted color ranges from sharp bright hues to warm diffuse and comforting, depending on piece and the context.
The lights pictured here are early prototypes. The future Lumen Umbra will feature more intricate patterning, seamless wood joining and different finishes. Please click here to see currently available artwork.
