let there be ‘light’ (in style)

… and then there was ‘Studio Avni’ who developed this beautiful experiments with lights.

The Faceted tactile Light series is a tactile and sensory experience of using traditional materials and re contextualizing them exploiting their inherent qualities. The concept was to create a structural module that would dictate the form. 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.

Faceted Beauty – a Brass Chandelier shell

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.

With references to strong geometrical construction principles, the entire collection is handmade, borrowing from the legacy of rich Indian handicrafts.

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

Fin Cloud light series are a sculptural take on biomorphism. Bilateral symmetry is special to us since it’s the most recognized balanced form found in nature. The concept is furthered by replicating and arraying fin modules around the central spine of the structure. The ethereal light sculptures generated are reminiscent of scaly marine creatures such as sea anemone and jellyfishes displaying forms that have a physical and mathematical basis. The evolved light structures are biological analogues of these creatures, mimicking their bilateral geometries, not only by reflection but also by rotation of repeated elements.
