Moiré
David Derksen Design Thursday 10 Mar 2016

Based on the Moiré Jewelry, this series of wall lamps is a celebration of the intriguing moiré effect. By rotating the back layer, the pattern interferes with the pattern in front. Rings, squares or hexagons seem to appear and to move, making this into an almost hypnotic effect. These lamps invite to play and become fascinated by the moiré principle.

Nature, and especially the principles and processes that are found in nature, are David Derksen's main sources of inspiration. This results in a strong focus on materials, how they behave and how they can be constructed. According to David Derksen, producing objects is like playing with the forces of nature. In his designs, he tries to express the beauty of the material and the way it is produced
