The Pixel piece was developed as a work of product/lightng design. The spun aluminium base and reflector was carefully designed by mapping raytracing diagrams of the directional light from a circular flourescent tube. The shape of the components allows coloured reflected light to wash the perimeter of the fitting while a different colour is collected as a gelatinous pool at the pieces centre. This illusion of colour is framed by white light that is allowed to escape directly onto the funnel like wall of the reflectors core. The piece is designed to function as a table, standard, hanging or wall mounted light shade. The light can be appreciated as a singular lamp or can be be organised in arrays of any shape to create complex mixes of additive light and coloured shadows within large public spaces.
