Curator’s note: ‘Put Yourself into a Forceful Rotation.’ A rather powerful piece of Roumelight lighting collection, the Wheelight Fuchsia, exudes plenteous materiality, a highly developed state of quality and an allusive take on contemporary forms and luminism.
This BMX bicycle-style wheel lighting installation, hangs like a seductive sculpture in its radial structure with bold circular form and strong industrial design presence.
The lighting colour of the lamps is warm white. The intensity of lighting may be adjusted by switching between the inner and the outer rings of lights or by dimming the interior G4 lights.
The inner luminous wreath is dimmable, while likely is a selection of different lighting combinations (inner wreath, outer or both). There is also a large variety of lighting colouration on the outside luminous wreath.
As for the background, in place of the plexiglass there is choice of coloured glass or glass with printing (of any subject), plus choice of different size and colour of the wheel, including the legendary BMW’s Metallic Black Blue.
In addition, the style of the wheel may vary (classic with braided spokes or radial without braided spokes). However, there is possibility of choosing a rectangle (instead of a circular canvas) giving a totally different style to the overall Wheelight installation.
➞ Technical support for assembling or hanging the lighting work is recommended.
Undoubtedly, within its spherical lighting explosion, the Wheelight Fuchsia lighting sculpture, from the Roumelight extensive collection, stately celebrates the embodiment of functional and artistic industrial design.
