ORBIS

A light object captures the synergy of sound and light. Two different media, which spread in a similar way, united in one whole. The connecting element is the person of Thomas Alva Edison, who in 1879 improved the bulb and patented it. Two years earlier, however, he patented a phonograph, which then developed for another ten years. The phonograph is able to record sound and later play it repeatedly. The light object consists of a polyphonic soundboard and a structure in which the LED light source is located. The subtle load-bearing structure leaves space for the dominant semi-steel disc. Sound waves are transmitted mechanically by means of punches to the corner.

Sound recording is then transmitted through the perforated plate to the wall by means of light waves. Play music through light. The ORBIS lamp resonates with light and sound that gain new uses. The lamp retains its mechanical impact, which ensures that the wheel is fitted to the pin. The sound wheel can thus move after manually rotating. The ORBIS light object combines an exact lapidary construction made of steel tubes and an original sound carrier, namely an antique disc with the composition Slovancká arie (Koněcký, Leipzig).
