Bec Brittain teamed up with John Hogan to present a lighting system inspired by the Aries constellation. Hogan’s initial concepts for his interventions were inspired by celestial references. Brittain’s underlying structures departed from the initial constellation concept to became more architectural, creating trusses and scaffolding to support the glass pieces.


Philosophical rocking lamps by The Coast

Either/Or by The Coast

New York-based studio The Coast presents a lighting series inspired by the philosophy of Søren Kierkegaard who explored conflict between the aesthetic and the ethical. “We rely on objects designed to serve us without asking for anything in return–Either/Or lamps encourage deliberate and emotionally acute interactions”. A user’s touch causes the light’s cradle to rock longingly back and forth, controlling the buoyancy and brightness, to “discover the second face behind the one you see.”
