The Perelin series, designed by Markus J. Becker, is a lighting fixture unlike anything I’ve ever seen. Firstly, the three-dimensional shapes are intriguing by themselves, but the fact that they emit light is beyond me. The luminosity is produced through a specialized electroluminescent glow sheet, apparently only being utilized currently in aviation and outdoor advertising.
Tension from folds produce the intricate shapes, producing an interesting relationship between the light and glassy backside. The piece is used more as indirect lighting to produce a neutral ambiance within the room. The open loops where the light faces outward is both mystifying and beautiful.
