Stunning abstract photography lighting exhibition at LDF
London lighting showroom Atrium is to host luxury light brand FLOS’s collaboration with Swedish photographer Carl Kleiner, during this year’s London Design Festival.
Entitled Architectural Lighting, the exhibition comprises a series of beautifully realised, abstract photographic compositions, aligned into perfect geometric grids. Each one incorporates FLOS luminaires, together with sections of coloured paper and other more industrial materials such as sandpaper, marble, wood and brass.
Kleiner was commissioned by internationally acclaimed art director Omar Sosa to play with the shapes and details of new lighting products from FLOS Architectural, which is renowned for the quality of materials and technological advancements in its designs.
FLOS CEO Piero Gandini said: “FLOS Architectural, headed with consummate skill by Federico Martinez Weber, represents a highly original and successful presence in today’s professional lighting sector. Working with Carl and Omar, and having the opportunity to interact with their personalities and talent, has been a source of great satisfaction and enjoyment.”
Having more in common with modernist art than promotional material, Kleiner’s photographs capture the technical detail of FLOS lighting in such an arresting narrative that displaying them large-scale in a gallery space was a natural next step.
After successfully debuting in Milan this year, this is the first time Architectural Lighting will be seen in the UK. Located in the centre of East London’s creative and tech industries, a mere minute’s walk from the iconic Silicon Roundabout, Atrium’s new showroom is perfectly placed to exhibit the photographs.
Architectural Lighting will run during London Design Festival from 15-19 September at Atrium, 28 Leonard Street, London EC2A 4BY, atrium.ltd.uk
