Eclipse of Rainbow
Eclipse of Rainbow is a luminaire using LED lighting technology.
Source of inspiration was nature, specifically the eclipse phenomenon and the analysis of light that derives from the combination of the seven colours that the rainbow consists of. The concept was practically conveyed by inserting a disc between the light source and the level of projection as it also happens with the eclipse phenomenon when a celestial body is interposed between another and the observer.
Aesthetically the object is based on the principle of contrast in light and shadow, black and white. A colourful and elaborate shading by a subtractive, black and white design approach which finally results to an unexpected outcome. In terms of functionality the way the light is rendered by the light sources, seven LED bulbs under a particular angle and a compact disc were placed so as two optical effects would be extracted: a colourful pattern on the floor and a white light composition on the compact disc level.
