Spatial refelectors are 'totums' made of steel. They reflect light and color. The Spatial Reflector are more eloborate outcomes of the zinc-electroplate research I've been doing in previous projects. These Spatial Reflectores are made in comission for Etage Projects Copenhagen, for the duo show with Sabine Marcellis early 2015.

About thirty percent of natural stones are crushed for industrial use as the underlayer for tarmac roads. What a loss of the beauty produced by all those millennia, Luuk van den Broek thought. His Atmospheric light sculpture is a way to use the pieces of waste stone with their natural beauty intact. The different types of stone collectively form an architectonic composition, reminiscent of high buildings in the light of dusk. The diversity in translucence and reflection of the material combine to form a playful and atmospheric whole, the rounded shape results in a continuous stream of patterns in the stone. A fragile iconic object, surrounded by a soft glow of light.
