The Shadow Light, the latest creation by Dutch designer Tord Boontje, is previewed at the Go Dutch exhibition at the Applied Arts Agency, Exmouth Market, London EC1, from 22 May to 26 July. Billed as ‘a magical carousel of colour, light and dream-like imagery’, the Shadow Light is a lightweight cylindrical structure that supports a curtain of fantasy woodland scenes, printed on colour transparent film. The scenes are projected as silhouettes on the surrounding walls when the light is on. The Shadow Light follows Boontje’s hugely successful Wednesday Light – adapted as Garland by Habitat – and his inclusion on the shortlist for the Design Museum’s inaugural Designer of the Year award. It will retail at £170 through Applied Arts.
The visual system created by SomeOne is based on movement patterns of birds gliding on thermal columns, which allow them to travel long distances with ease.
