French artist Arik Levy has designed this series of geometric pendant lighting fixtures called Wireflow for VIBIA lighting company. The chandeliers which vary in shape and size, are formed by thin rods and LED terminals (3W), which run parallel to one another and frame physical shapes out of the immaterial. Levy then molds the rods to create hanging minimalist sculptures that finish with a set of tiny capsule-like bulbs.
Wireflow reinterprets classical approaches to lighting fixtures in a highly contemporary manner that creates compositions that play with two and three-dimensional space. According to Levy, Wireflow symbolizes presence and absence, transparency and luminosity, light and fluidity. Like much of Levy’s work, Wireflow is a sculptural meditation in the ways humans interact with and understand objects. Click through to see more.
