Gap Lighting by Mario Tsai

Gap Lighting is a minimal collection of lights created by Hangzhou-based designer Mario Tsai. Gap Lighting was inspired by the natural phenomenon of the sunbeam. Lights pass through gaps in the metal panels, like the light behind cumulus clouds emanating from the edge of clouds. The intersecting surfaces of aluminum profiles are illuminated by light, constructing a sense of architecture-like light and shadow. The two ends of the extension retain the original end face after processing, reflecting a kind of outwardly growing and unfinished state. Although the product appears like a silent sculpture, the designer hopes to narrow the distance between the product and people through certain interactive ways: you can switch the cold and warm of the light by sweeping your arms around it; or you can touch the surface of the profile to adjust the brightness, bringing human feeling to the lighting.
