Camouflage by Front
'Camouflage' and 'Shadow' lights by the Swedish design team Front. Both collections debuted at this year's Milan Furniture Fair, the first under the lighting company Zero and the latter as part of Front's own 'Found' series.
The common thread between these pieces is how they play with light and shadow. Camouflage is made from laser-cut aluminum, resulting in a beautiful pattern on the fixture itself as well as on surrounding walls and objects as light is cast out. The Shadow series has a more subtle approach - objects are placed in the globe, creating a soft impression of the pieces hidden within.
