Studio Maarten De Ceulaer
Studio Maarten De Ceulaer is also present at Design Miami/Basel 2015 to present the new updated version of Grid Series-Wall light by the Design-Art Dealer Victor Hunt. This version is made with warm white leds. All the Grids are milled in the top and bottom of solid wood planks, allowing them to be bent in fluid 3-dimensional curves. They subsequently are filled with an elaborate electrical circuit, connecting hundreds of LEDs. The wooden planks are transformed into cyborg-like, illuminating surfaces. Hand-crafted from a beautiful natural material, these planks can be plugged into a computer, and the movement of the light can be programmed. They seem to come from a virtual reality; their liquid lines are reminiscent 3D-modelling software. To freeze the shape and solidify the piece, the grids are filled up with resin.
