DESIGNER: OS & OOS
“SYZYGY” is the scientific word for an astronomical phenomenon that consists in the alignment of 3 celestial bodies, such as occurs in an eclipse, a transit or an occultation, thus the names given to the 3 wall lamps by the designers. During an eclipse, one body partially or completely disappears from sight. During a transit, a seemingly small body goes before a seemingly big body. During an occultation, a seemingly big body goes before a smaller body.
The collection "SYZYGY" recreates those phenomena by using circles of glass that polarize the light of a permanent LED sun in astute ways.
