Hella Jongerius: Daylight


Dutch designer Hella Jongerius has designed Daylight – a table that uses resin blocks to disperse colour across its surface – for the HSBC Connection Collection IV, to be launched at the Design Miami Basel design expo this June.

Inspired by the changing colours of the sun’s light throughout the day, the table consists of a wooden base onto which coloured resin blocks are layered. The surface layer is composed of translucent blocks with matt and gloss surfaces, allowing for the pigmented blocks beneath to show through in varying densities.

The work is one of several released throughout the design world recently that shows a fascination with colour transparency and density.
