Kurenai Light Object by Ane Lykke
Hitoshi Arato
Mar 3, 2021

Kurenai Light Object designed by Ane Lykke is a fusion between traditional Japanese craftsmanship and a new Nordic perspective.

The Kurenai Light Object is based on the Japanese woodworking technique Kumiko. Lykke unites her previous work with light and a strong fascination of the grid structure in the Kurenai Light Object. An object that manifests as a fusion between traditional Japanese craftmanship and a new Nordic perspective. The three-dimensional grid has been applied colour in white and red and play with different states, colours and shades of reflected light.

The interaction between the layered three-dimensional grid, creates different modes of shadow, depth and reflection. Kurenai Light Object combines the intangible, the light, with elements and forms structures that generates an ever-changing experience, depending on the viewers position in relation to the object. The light object is designed for use in a private as well as a public space, where it becomes part of a flexible process, inviting the viewer into a dialogue, as co-creator. Kurenai is the Japanese word for a strong red colour.
