Artecnica – Phrena light

Artecnica – Phrena light

Created from the “simplicity of opening a book, the pages of this light work together to create perfect symmetry.

“Upon manipulation this perfectly flat light fixture transforms into a beautiful 3-D shade.”

Artecnica’s use of white tyvek once again creates a glow and adds warmth to any environment.

Can be configured for up-lighting or down-lighting distribution.

PhrenaAmaranthaceae Gomphrena Globosa: =  The flower which gives the Phrena its name.


I wanted the assembly of the light fixture to be as simple as opening a book. It was to be perfectly flat to begin with and through careful manipulation, a three dimensional form would take shape. I was also attracted to the concept of the material simplicity becoming complex. There are so many perameters to play with that will alter the appearance and function of the light. But at the most basic level, it is a composition of pages all working together in symmetry.
