Lamp, Blush

This is a lamp. It was manufactured by Flos. It is dated 2017. Its medium is led strip, dichroic glass. It is a part of the department.

"The quality of light cannot solely be measured through its intensity.” With Blush, Studio Formafantasma proposes a solution to the lack of color saturation in winter light. Made from a simple LED strip and a piece of dichroic glass, the lamp projects brightly-tinted reflections on the walls.

It is credited Courtesy of Flos.
