The ELLIPSE LIGHT for Broached East continues Keiji Ashizawa’s poetic play with base materials, simple geometries and the work of gravity.
Ellipse takes a large flat piece of aluminium that, when suspended by a single cable, warps under the weight of its own expanse, appearing seemingly weightless. The lightness of the material enables the entire piece to move gently. This causes a lovely shifting shadow with a single light; with multiple lights a mobile effect is created.
