Keeping your light under a bustle

Commercial lighting firm Deltalight teamed up with Low Countries haute couturist, Belgian fashion designer Tim Van Steenbergen, commissioning him to create a new light. The result is very ‘A’ line – a series of aluminium plates with alternating angles, creating the effect of a skirt of many petticoats. Van Steenbergen says the form ‘conducts the light into a varying effect of shadows’ – an effect one might consider to be quite subtle until you realise the scale of the thing. At 2.1m tall, and available in white, black or red, the Metronome XXL is in fact a huge eyecatcher that can enhance any large space and dwarf a small one. In a size 0 world, it’s good to know that at least one designer’s happily gone plus size.
