IO Light is an investigation into light and translucency, material composition, geometry and scale. With these factors being inherently connected and dependent of each other our process was founded on material choice. material that could adapt both to the form as well as the different levels of translucency. We also wanted a material that we could color ourselves in order to play with the opacity and ambience.
The combination of the hard wooden feet and the soft and matte texture of the surface of the shell and shade is something that evolved and quickly grew on us.
IO Light has all the time had the same simple geometric shape, but the proportions of it was a matter of finding a balance between object and light. IO Light is reforming the ambience, the tactility and the size of a table lamp.
