Embodying or at least addressing the current socio-political climate, Lux Pacis by Spanish collective Amarist is a symbolic lamp offering a ‘beam of hope,’ an inverted reference to a war missile. Light itself has long been a emblem for optimism. Custom designed for Design Days Dubai and represented by Barcelona Design Gallery, this singular work engaged visitors as a translucent white alabaster shel projecting LED light. The material itself drew additional reference to purity and innocence but also societal ruins. A rose is perhaps the best emblem of hope and rebirth. The entire proceeds of its sales will be donated to the World Peace Forum, as a concrete step towards design activism.
