Design to Shape Light: A photographic exploration of the creative possibilities of light

Michael Grubb Studio

Twenty-one of Europe's most innovative architects, designers and creatives have taken part in a unique photography exhibition in London to explore the creative possibilities of light.

Organised by lighting manufacturer Louis Poulsen and curated by lighting designer Paul Nulty, people like Iwan Baan, Tony Chambers, Jason Bruges and Christian Flindt were asked to submit an image based on the theme 'Design To Shape Light'.

"I jumped at the opportunity to work with Louis Poulsen on this project as there are so many innovative players on the A&D scene that have a great eye that goes beyond their own discipline and into the realm of light," says Paul Nulty. "Photography is an ideal way of expressing this, and the result is a collection of twenty very different, personal perspectives of light, and ultimately, emotions."

The exhibition, which runs until 26 October at the Carl Hansen & Son showroom in Clerkenwell, marks the celebration of six decades of Louis Poulsen's PH Artichoke and PH 5 products as well as the brand's overall success in the design industry.

Each photograph is available for sale through a silent auction with all proceeds going to Maggie’s, Barts, at St Bartholomew’s Hospital.
