VIEW I-Beam Lamp is an all-glass lamp that seeks to bring interactive views into object interiors. Views are used to challenge the viewer through intrigue and curiosity when unexpected visual effects are produced through interaction with the pieces. The lamp changes constantly as you live with it - colors change with the sun angles throughout the day, or a reflection may reduce or multiply when viewed from a different angle.  It is a piece that lives with its surroundings rather than in them, representing the belief that joy often comes from unexpected or momentary effects, and that objects should live and change with their surroundings just as we do. 

Due to the material dichroics used, I-Beam Light is intended to dynamically change colors throughout the day and depending on what angle it is viewed from. Colors can range from blue to pink to gold, and often appears as some combination of these colors. See our candids page for additional photos in-situ.
