If you were to walk into a room that's been decorated with an Asterix Pendant Light, you might wonder if it's function is purely decorative. Christopher Boots has created an eye-catching collection of ceiling-suspened fixtures with luminescent sources that are hidden within the metal frames.
The Melbourne designer explores the conflicting yet harmonious compositions that result from combining acute and obtuse angles. The symbolic sculptural pieces comprise the Parallelogram, the Quadrix, the Triptyx, the Unix and the Asterix, referencing the shapes that they make, as well as the brass frameworks that splay and give some of them three-dimensionality. The Asterix Pendant Light series gleams in daylight and highlights its intriguing geometries with hidden integrated LEDs after dark.
