“Making new colours and reflecting intense light through space and across distances is the métier I explore with passion,” says renowned Danish artist and textile designer Astrid Krogh in her new book, Flux Luminous, published by Strandberg Publishing.

Picking up on the trend of architects, designers and artists using light in their work, Krogh transforms buildings and interiors into otherworldly spaces infusing light into historic textiles and creating new forms and structures. In the book, Krogh discusses the future of light in design and architecture, and talks about the combination of traditional lighting systems with modern technologies, like LED.

Flux Luminous showcases Krogh’s oeuvre for the first time with illustrated examples of her extraordinary light spaces. Analysis of her work by Danish and international textile experts, and her own comments on some of her projects, also feature.

There are also texts by contributing writers – Emily Zilber, Tine Byrckel and Jakob Schoof – about the psychological effects of light and colour on wellbeing and how we experience our surroundings, and a piece on the benefits of reflecting textiles and modern practices when renovating old tapestries. Acclaimed British author and textile design specialist Bradley Quinn edited Flux Luminous and also contributed as writer.

Krogh has exhibited at international art and design fairs, art galleries and museums.  She was awarded the Finn Juhl Prize in 2016, and is the chairman of the Danish Arts Foundation’s Committee for Crafts and Design Project Funding (2014-2017).
