After the success of Spectrum I in 2015, Joy Mardini Gallery approached four of their designers, Marc Baroud, Karim Chaya, Georges Mohasseb and Thomas Trad to transcend the idea and the classical conception of light for Spectrum II.
According to Oxford dictionary, a Spectrum is a band of colors, as seen in a rainbow, produced by separation of the components of light by their different degrees of refraction according to wavelength… To celebrate its 7th year, Joy Mardini Gallery recently introduced Spectrum II, the Weight of Light.
According to the gallery: “Light is design’s basic material, perhaps its only material. Is it tangible? Does light have a thickness? Can it hold an object? To ask such questions, is to give light a bigger visibility. To build with light, is to give it density, it is to find it a palpable thickness. To grant light a mass slows down its movement, thus giving it an important weight. If gravity could, in fact be applicable to light, it would give it the firmness of material. In design, light has an important weight.”
The show will run until February 28, 2019 at Joy Mardini Gallery.
