london-based designer julian mayor has released ‘intersect’, a limited edition task light whose form is based on computer graphic simulations of explosions. 

mayor explains, ‘I was interested in the way the computer takes a surface and divides it in a dynamic way to create the illusion of momentum’.

crafted from three pieces of tinted acrylic the light slots together without any additional fasteners and uses a flat panel LED matrix as the light source.

‘intersect’ along with the previously released frame light, angle chair and may stool will be a part of the design auction at pierre berge in brussels on december 16, 2011.

  • @Mac: same thought that crossed my mind

  • <3 x 1,000,000

    No Smarties
  • the photos make it difficult to read the shapes, a video would help…

  • agree it feels retro but also quite new at the same time. I feel confused, but in a good way

  • It reminds me 80’s design taste …

  • this light looks interesting. I would like to see it for real

  • Probably the ugliest lamp I have ever seen. The prototype looks much better..
