Floor Light from The Secant Project by Daniel Rybakken.
“The Secant Project is about visual and semiotic contrast; the crystal disc communicates something pure, fragile and elevated in value, whilst the machined aluminium parts and the pulley communicate the industrial” Daniel Rybakken.
The Secant Wall, Floor and Table Light 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.
