UNPLUGGED

Unexplored world of zero thickness and multiple reflections.

This is an unplugged OLED lighting fixture to be used on the table, which lasts for six hours. Candles were the only unplugged light to be used on tables in restaurants etc., but this time we are introducing a completely new light. A planer OLED light source is used. Viewed from the side through an acrylic surface, it becomes totally invisible and the bottom turns into a mirrored surface. The light source at the bottom can be seen only from above. The upper surface is half-mirrored, and one peeks inside it to find the unexplored world of zero thickness and multiple reflections, as if looking inside the black hole.
