Three shades comprising folded polygonal shapes are suspended from thin wire and each houses a "micro-tube light".

Polygon Crash – Pendant Light - Flip Sellin/Coordination

Polygon Crash is a handcrafted, prototype pendant light measuring approx. 110 x 80 x 60 cm. It is made of mild and stainless steel and consists of three layered polygon shades, each holding a micro-tubelight. The partially mirrored polygons are suspended by thin steel wire.

The shade’s composition creates a central void which the tubelight pouches are orientated towards. Once lit, the Polygons appear to crash into each other, reconstructing shapes, reflecting and incorporating the surroundings as sliced images.

The object merges with the space, creating an iconic appearance and starts a dynamic dialogue between space, object and observer.
