eindhoven-based designer bas van raay of studio vraay has created the lighting fixture, ‘slow moves’. the outcome of experimenting with transparent forms and LED lights, this project draws from the concept of scuba diving tanks and how they shape intangible gas to create volume.

the designer explains: ‘a line sketched on paper can define a space without really making surfaces. that’s what fascinates me about tubes, they beautifully define their space without covering it with surfaces.’standing 140 centimeters tall, ‘slow moves’ features a small two-watt, high-power LED light. the work will be produced in a limited edition series for karena schuessler gallery in berlin.
