Anna Karlin Puts Her Best Face Forward With a Floor-to-Ceiling Light Sculpture
Although at this point we may be hard-pressed to recall what an unmasked face looks like, New York–based Brit Anna Karlin offers a reminder with Face Light. The floor-to-ceiling light sculpture traces a noble profile in bronze-finish tubular steel—a look reminiscent of artist Oskar Schlemmer’s exquisite metal relief silhouettes adorning the walls of Adolf Rading’s 1930s Rabe House. Shown in the standard 110-inch height (86 is the minimum), the fixture is available hardwired or as a plug-in (from top or bottom) model.
A dimmable 4.5-watt LED bulb cleverly becomes the focal point, the eye, emanating a soft glow that gives the piece life.
