Light-Shaping Surfaces

Jordan Söderberg Mills

London-based designer Jordan Söderberg Mills has created a series of light shaping surfaces using the refracting properties of glass to generate shifting patterns.

The objects range from textured panes of treated glass to smooth, rounded pieces that sit in curated piles on top of reflective surfaces. The arrangement and lighting brings out a unique spectrum of colours from each object, creating a mesmerising depth and illusion.

The colours created are ethereal and multifaceted, lending an iridescent, shimmering feel to the project.
