The Venus Lights
Material: Anodised Aluminium (Gold Colour) with Handmade Glass Screen
Dimensions: L25 x W5 x H25cm
Brooksbank & Collins’ Venus lights are named in honour of Sandro Botticelli’s painting, The Birth of Venus, 1486. Venus emerging from the shell echoes the light emerging from the body of the wall sconce.
Using the same outer geometry the concealed light source can open up in a series like the sun giving birth to a new day.
Venus contains a concealed light source which gently casts light outwards through radiating lines as well as upwards onto the wall above, creating a kaleidoscopic array. When the lights are arranged in sequence the overlapping array of lines is mesmerizing.
