Rotterdam-based designer Arnout Meijer has created the Photon Vortex light.
Photon Vortex is a light object shaped by persistence of vision. When this kinetic object spins fast enough the light appears to be made of static floating circles. Together with the focal glow against the wall the led circles create an intangible composition of different layers of light.
It’s an easy principle actually; It spins fast enough that the after effects are the circles of light that you see on the wall mount. If you blink frequently, it disturbs the image and you can actually see the object.
The base of the light is made of nickel plated steel, led, acrylic, electronics and museum glass.
