"However, contrary to their 20th-century peers, this little family of designers seems to explore simultaneously the modernist vocabulary and its potential collapse with, as leitmotif, order and dissolution; geometric regularity and deformation; clarity and illusion; presence and disappearance."
- Maria Wettergren

The big round wall lamp/clock City Light with crystallized town’s grid and town’s mess – its order and chaos.
Every hour it starts from dawn, evolves to the broad daylight and down to dusk and dark.
This cyclus lasts precisely an hour - 60 minutes*.
It goes on and on with its counting the transition of light's intensity and colours in their daily repeating rhythm…

*At the exhibition the cycle is programmed to repeat every 5 min.

City Light in collaboration with Daniel Berlin.
