The idea for the Inspiral concept grew from a vision Jaroslav Bejvl had of a gymnast performing a floor routine, a ribbon of color swirling around her body as she moved. It was this concept of fluid motion and changing color that Bejvl wanted to capture – a dancing light. From there he developed the idea of shaping the light into a spiral to create a soothing, harmonious effect that could be molded to fit any space, big or small, any way a designer wanted. It is this flexibility that ensure that, just like dancers, no two lights are alike.
Each Inspiral light is created from a specially deformed stainless steel ribbon that can be bent and shaped as desired. An LED strip comprised of small diodes lines the edges of the ribbon, changing colors according for different moods, whether according to the time of day or to suit a specific color palette.
This light then refracts through the thousands of cut crystal prisms, attached to the ribbon with miniscule pins, to create Inspiral’s distinctive shimmering effect. Finally, the crystal prisms are designed to “cut the curve” – a technique for connecting even-sided prisms and turning them into a fully dynamic and organic form.
