The Refraction Lamps collection is inspired by the refraction of light produced by heated air and its transparent and reflective effects. An auxetic pattern enables sheet materials to deform three-dimensional. The etched metal thus deforms to a lattice with numerous facets and angles that reflects the light and the environment in which it is located, creating an intricate geometric and shadow play.
The pattern deformation is digitally simulated and special moulds are 3D printed, allowing the creation of various shapes.
