Susanne de Graef together with Vij5
"For the design of the Glint Light, Susanne explored the genesis of artificial light and took inspiration from old Philips lightbulb posters from the early 20th century. The light beams, scattered from the lightbulb and beautifully illustrated as geometric patterns, show the essence of light and its effect. Susanne translated these patterns into shape and material. By switching on the Glint Light, the shape and material are mixed with the effects of light, creating a beautiful interaction with its surroundings."
- Arjan & Anieke
‘Glint’ literally means: 'to produce small, bright flashes of light reflected from a surface'. The Glint Light collection does exactly that; it reflects light on two aluminium interlocking elements, with arms overlapping each other, covering the light source. A poetic play of light emerges, shattered by the intricately designed aluminium arms, diffusing the light onto the walls, floor and/or ceiling.
The collection offers two versions of the lamp: a wall and a suspension light. The aluminium parts are anodized in different colours. Each colour has its own effect on the reflection of the lighting and gives the light its own intensity and quality.
