A Piece of Time Coffee Table
A low table with an integrated glass prism marks the passage of time in Konstfack University Masters student Luna Seo’s That Piece of Time project. At a precise time in a given day light strikes the prism and a rainbow coloured projection is produced. The coffee table consists of two levels of different height, with a glass prism filling in the gap between the tops.
Says Seo, “Consider time as a continuation of ‘now’s. Not a single one is the same. So consistent and everlasting, one can easily forget its weight, take it for granted. One meets miracles at every single ‘now’, although some are forgotten and only some remain.”
The objects in the That Piece of Time collection “grasp time from the sunlight and shed unexpected, unrepeatable moments for you to cherish. It unveils pieces of time through the meetings between light and light-refracting materials.”
