Clean lines, reflective raw aluminum, efficient use of material, and an interlocking assembly were ideas graypants had in mind as they began designing the step light.
The natural process of prototyping different models led to interesting plays on light and shadow. The sixteen interlocking aluminum rings and the joinery in assembly become the beauty of this fixture. Reveals left between each layer cast concentric shadows on the surrounding walls and ceiling. The random pixels of light on the surface are a result of the assembly but also create a unique pattern for each fixture.
