The work with the title ‘Sunset/Sunrise’ is a lighting object which is about an abstract interpretation of both the sunrise and sunset. The ‘‘Sunset/Sunrise’ consists of a big glass light bulb with a large, solid aluminium panel on both sides of the bulb. These 15 mm thick, anodised, reflectors that can stop or steer the light.
Within the concept it’s about the interaction with the ‘user’, in contrast to the invisible wifi controls that are often implemented in current light sources the ‘Sunset/Sunrise’ requires a physical action to be performed in order to steer or dim the light.
The aluminium panels measure 75 cm by 50 cm and have a brushed surface which causes the light to reflect in a particular, diffuse manner. The pulleys are specifically designed and are turned from aluminium which is anodised in the same colour as the panels.
The light bulb is made of opal glass and the cross-sections measures 40 cm.
