Description/

The light pendant, City Light was designed in 2020 by Boris Berlin and Daniel Berlin in resin, fibreglass and LED. Cast on the city of Manhattan, the luminary in translucent resin reflects the ordered yet chaotic grid of the modernist city par excellence. Programmed to the shifting color/light cycle of the city, this light-clock travels an entire day in one hour, from the first rays of sunrise into a glowing midday sun, to the nocturnal fading of light.
