The Oculus | Santiago Calatrava

Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava’s vast ribbed structure that soars over the World Trade Center Transportation Hub in New York is captured in these images by British photography duo Hufton + Crow. Known as the Oculus, the building is designed to bring light down into the subterranean rail station and shopping centre that quietly opened in March 2016. Glazing in between these elements brings copious amounts of light into the space, which has an open floor surrounded by two levels of shops.

Voie Lights | Sabine Marcelis

The ‘Voie’ light series is the result of an investigation into the manipulation of light-paths. Having chosen neon as the primary light source, the designed objects create an interception on the path the light follows through the addition of a singular extra material.

The addition of cast polyester resin diffuses the light path and in turn uses the light source to enhance the colour properties within the resin. A new moment is created when this mutually beneficial relationship is formed between materials, defining the unique properties of each where the two meet.

The second edition of the table-model voie light series is now available in a variety of colour options.
