1990, the Netherlands

Dear visitor,

The design from 1990 seems to be timeless, because there is a persistent demand for this article.
I have therefore chosen to reapply the techniques in order to make another small series of these objects. The quantity depends on the biddings, my future plans and the materials to be obtained.

The geometric light object consists of 12 brushed spheres made of stainless steel - 316, which means it can be used both indoors and outdoors. The spheres are interconnected purely symmetrically, using compounding steps in various moulds with multiple connection techniques and a "lot of patience", to form a strong casing. And there's the rub in this work of art: if just one sphere isn't exactly in the right place, then the rest will not fit either and the construction process cannot be completed.
The light element (entirely interchangeable) was placed in the empty inner space which was formed.

Each sphere is in the same position in relation to the other spheres, from every angle, and each brushed structure is aimed at the centre. This is what makes the object fascinating on the one hand, while also forming a peaceful unity at the same time. The symmetrical shape corresponds with the (small) diamond carbon atom, but it is 63 cm high in this case. It comes with a energy-efficient LED lamp for atmospheric lighting indoors.
The weather-resistant stainless steel can also endure a lamp with a high wattage, however, in order to create "radiant" lighting for the garden.

The original and protected model from 1990 has a fixed reserve price of €850 and comes with signed, with certificate.
