The base idea was to experiment with human sensation of the built environment and the modified light of it. Architecture surrounds us, and we will be only able to observe it from some given perspectives. The same as the natural or artificial light coming through the architectural brakes and structures. Thus this, understanding the structure, and the complexity of the construction is an eternal demand in many human being.
Experimenting with the structural elements and scales, while the form and core material was inspired by and based on Japanese architecture in the sixties, an ambient light was born. This is an ideal, functional and sctuctural object to represent the basic concept. Thanks to the function, not just the inwrought scale was turned over but the taken place of the object is also replaced from the outside natural area to an inside built one, and also from the far to the close one.
Both the function and the turned over scale invites us to a new type of observation. The object was designed to ensure from each side a different sctuctural view, while the exact light source can not be seen from any side. Thanks this the observation can start again and again if the lamp is moved around its axis or in the environment.
