About The Piece
In this series of « Atomic » lamps, Atelier Van Lieshout evokes the energy created by the atom splitting, paradoxically serving comfort while posing a threat to the planet’s safety. It recomposes the light source with a spatial geography of cylindrical volumes in folded sheet steel cut in different sections. Using this system of mobile pendulums or unwavering volumes, it renews the art of physically spreading light waves, determining the beams’ direction by calculating the segment and the height. It is the director of a spectacular light show in space using magic and the chasing-projector effect, like on stage.
