Light fixture manufacturer Selux and design studio ART+COM have teamed up to create the Manta Rhei, a visionary light fixture that moves and constantly changes its appearance, bringing to mind the image of a manta ray gliding gracefully through water. The result of the team’s exploration of kinetic luminaries, the OLED-based Manta Rhei combines precise lighting control and kinetic movement to create a unique product that promises to create a new experience of light for interiors.
The modular fixture, with its sleek and minimalistic design, brings a touch of sophistication to any room, whether it hangs above a classic bar, in a contemporary home, or above an elegant dining table. The Manta Rhei gives the illusion of floating weightlessly in space with its own natural rhythm, but the user can also select from a wide range of pre-programmed choreographies in order to adjust the light mood to suit the occasion.
Traditional light fixtures are giving way to more aesthetic and unique forms of design. According to Selux, “Through the interplay of kinetic aesthetics and the dynamics of the light a new world of lighting possibilities is now available.”
