Establishing a bold yet unobtrusive spatial presence, Bec Brittain‘s latest Resolute collection reconciles the sublime qualities of repetition and permanence with the ethereal force of light. The installation-scale fixtures – mounted at New York’s The Future Perfect gallery – build on the designer’s esteemed SHY series; formalising the immaterial agency and capacity of LED technology through minimalistic strokes. Suggesting the potential for customised interior applications, Resolute presents Brittain’s foray into glass-casting and reflective layering.

Both Flags designs transform the archetypical form referenced into solid slabs; extending the users relationship with space. Composed as a spectrum of coloured hues, the offset forms are carefully sliced at the bottom to suggest the presence of a perpendicular plane. Tension Beams extend from floor to ceiling; spiraling mounted glass strips, that diffuse light, into a three-dimensional flourish. Climbing Beams jut at different angles between the 45-degree span of two adjoined walls. The metallic tubes cast indirect light, reactivating architectonic elements of the void they occupy.
