At ICFF this year, Michal Bartosik, an architect and designer based in Toronto, showed Dominion, a series of lamps/coffee tables that reflect the ceiling grid of Mies van der Rohe's Toronto-Dominion building ad infinitum. Because the pattern is modular, the reflection planes compound to produce a never ending effect. The pieces are available through Nienkamper, and are part of the Klaus Collection. He explains above.
After a nice conversation with Michal about his architecture and design practice, we looked into some of his past work. It's awesome—check out the fluorescent domes he's made, a smartly detailed nod to Bucky Fuller.
