Secant Desk LIght - Daniel Rybakken x J.Hill's
A series of lights by Daniel Rybakken for J.Hill’s Standard presented at Palazzo Litta during Salone del Mobile in Milan 2016.
“The Secant project is about visual and semiotic contrast”.
The Secant Wall is a series of hand cut crystal discs suspended and supported by a metal skeleton linking the crystal glass with the light engine and the wall or surface below. The lathed anodised aluminium becomes both a visual, tactile and also a symbolic contrast to the glass. The LED light source does not illuminate the disc directly, but is angled towards the surface behind or beneath the object, reflecting and diffusing the light back through the glass into the surrounding space.
