We love seeing the different ways people use our lighting filters. One recent example of this was an installation by Connor Robertson from Installate Design. 

Connor’ background in events and structural/civil engineering enabled him to create this geodesic skeleton structure made of 40 individual hollow perspex frames. Each panel is covered in a different coloured gel from LEE Filters. The panels in the structure can easily be replaced with any lightweight material to create infinite bespoke ideas from a dj booth to pop-up promo tent.

Connor chose LEE because of the vast range of colours available. He loved the way the quality of the light reinforced the visual importance of the design and that the vibrant colours he chose gave an impression of clean precision and beauty.

Many light bulb manufacturers are making the switch to energy efficient bulbs a bit easier with handy tools such as THIS.

Reflective Fractal Buildings by Carsten Witte

Peering into the glass facades of skyscrapers looming ominously overheard can be a bit like gazing into a crystal ball: if you look at it when the light hits it in just the right spot, you might see something that’s usually not there… the future, the fairest maiden of them all, or the eye of Sauron. Carsten’s reflective photography stares back at you, its glass panes contorting reality and the undulating cityscapes surrounding it.

“Light can be gentle, dangerous, dreamlike, bare, living, dead, misty, clear, hot, dark, violet, springlike, falling, straight, sensual, limited, poisonous, calm and soft.”
