Design Economy Expo 2017

Flux, by Dutch designer Onno Adriaanse. Light is an elusive phenomenon and has a large influence on human beings. Flux is a series of mesmerising light installations, small in size, still with a large optical impact.

Using the moiré effect, wherein two identical patterns slowly move towards each other, mesmerising patterns are being created and projected on the wall behind.

Flux projects impressive and scalable changing patterns of light onto walls.

For Flux, Adriaanse incorporated two layers of perforated, laser-cut acrylic sheet–one fixed, and the other rotates. Having simple construction and a relative small size improves Flux's portability.

Studio Onno Adriaanse is a multidisciplinary studio with a focus on light. Onto is working on the thin line between the functional aspect and the emotional experience that light can create. He is always searching for the combination of art, design and concept development. Because by combining several disciplines the most interesting designs will be found. Usually a material itself is the start of a new design process, using the characteristics of the material as a guide. Onion’s work often has an element of surprise and tries to accomplish a sensorial experience for the user.
