The Daydreamer – an object that responds to natural and artificial light.

Daydreamer is a hybrid object of art and design, creating ways to observe the phenomena of light. The luminaire consists of two individual parts – the curved dichroic glass piece and the quartz sand element with an integrated miniature spotlight.
A seemingly transparent curved glass tints the surrounding surfaces with colours and becomes a brush to create paintings of light.

Dichroic glass has special optical properties: it reflects some of the component colours of light and is permeable to others. It reveals a fact that we all know but can not see: white light contains many colours. The object brings an opportunity to observe the continues shifting: during the day – with changing natural light, and in the evening – with the help of artificial illumination.

It is the light that forms the dialogue between the elements of sand and glass, shaping it into wall mounted luminaire- the Daydreamer.
