Child Studio designed a collection of sculptural lighting objects that play with the illusion of movement, exploring the perception of reality and fantasy. A series of glowing glass spheres appear to be rolling and sliding from the top of slanted geometric plinths, captured at a point of subtle balance, as if frozen in time. When viewed from different angles, the object’s shapes appear to change creating beyond-real three-dimensional effects. The collection’s name ‚In the Shadow of a Man‘ refers to a quote attributed to the Italian surrealist painter Giorgio De Chirico: ‚There is much more mystery in the shadow of a man walking on a sunny day, than in all religions in the world.‘ Child Studio was set up in London by Alexey Kostikov and Chieh Huang. The duo works on the intersection of object design, spatial projects, art direction and photography, creating cinematic and intriguing narratives and experiences.
