Called Colour, the lamp incorporates an opaque disk illuminated from behind by a circular fluorescent tube.
Translucent coloured screens are then leaned in front of the disk against a wall, and overlapped to create different effects.
"The project is about letting a user mix different colours and compose different compositions depending on their needs," says Rybakken. "It also raise the question: Why does a lamp need to be one object? Why can't a lamp be the sum of several different objects?"

Here's a little text from the designer:
Colour. In collaboration with Andreas Engesvik
Colour is about the mixing of colour and composition in shape.
Though I work often with aspects of daylight, this collarorative project allowed me to investigate quite different effects and sensations of light. With a largely monochromatic pallette to-date, I also welcomed the opportunity to explore colour.
Using sheets of coloured glass placed freely in front of a light source, Colour invites the user to mix various hues.
I was also intrigued here by the exploded concept of a lamp, formed not only of multiple components, but by multiple objects too.
