renowned for their sensual, multi-layered, architectural use of space and meticulous detailing, hong-kong based ed ng and terence ngan present at milan design week 2017 their flux collection for LASVIT. motivated by lighting reflecting off the ocean in shallow water and the traces left by the receding tide, the lamps showcase different material levels that portray this scenery.

the complete flux collection for LASVIT by ed ng and terence ngan has been hand-blown using a metal gold to provide its unique appearance. the clear top meets with inner and outer hand-painted gold and platinum layers, referencing the decoration of traditional asian ceramics. its organic lines trap and refract light between the layers to create a deep radiance and the impression of water in motion. sophisticated, timelessly fluid and processing the highest qualities, this collaboration sits comfortably between eastern and western cultures.
