A twisting strand of 216 LEDs suspended by a thin wire, Spiralight sparkles as a unique creation made by Robin Carpenter. First prize winner at the Lights of the Future 2006 awarded by the German Design Council. Robin states, “Often chandeliers appear like clusters of lights similar to galaxies but rather than concentrating many lights in an object I wanted to direct the perception of the object with light. With Spiralight your eyes are bound to roll with the small light-spots created by the many leds. It’s the effect of follow-me as if one was looking for something specific – like tracing a shooting star.”
A dazzling piece of light art was created for residential use. Carpenter was inspired to create this chandelier when she became interested in creating work which channeled the effect of ‘tracing a shooting star’. Shown below, three armed elements are successively positioned around a ring. They visually create an endless rotation filling 360°.
