Primary Fluorescents Cast Edition BY Os & Oos
Os & Oos’ Primary Fluorescents Cast Edition collection combines ostensively contrasting materiality with essential geometric elements. The name is a combination of the fluorescent nature of the gasses that create light and the forms such as circle, square and triangle, that build the final shapes. Working with foam usually used for packaging made it easy to create the shapes needed as well as producing precise yet cost efficient molds for creating the final version in aluminium. Aluminum was chosen as the final material for a number of reasons: A lost wax casting method made extremely precise copies of the prototyp foam molds and retains all the detail of the original material. Aluminum – the way it is used in these new lights – also shares with the foam that it replicates the look of stone or concrete. It has the same size to weight ratio as marble, so paying homage to the initial prototypes. Last but not least the result are three new unique lights in which two worlds meet – lightness and heaviness, breakable and unbreakable.
