Flynn Talbot’s X&Y Connects Light and Colour
Experimental Australian lighting designer Flynn Talbot has produced an interactive piece for Berlin’s Helmrinderknecht gallery of contemporary design that combines light and colour in a spherical object.
Dubbed X&Y, the limited edition piece allows the user to adjust the colour by rotating the globe along the horizontal x-axis, and adjust the intensity of the light by varying its placement on the y-axis.
Challenging ideas of interface and user interaction in lighting design, as well as the use of temporary colour within interior spaces, Talbot’s X&Y paves the way for more experimental forms of colour and light in the contemporary home.
The work will be shown at the gallery until March 26.
