I was involved in the design of Optic when working for the architect Tim Power who owns its intellectual property. Optic was originally designed as a contract spotlight for an exclusive fashion store in Tokyo, that mixed clothing with furniture design pieces. The project brief was to design a technical light for a retail store that could be sold as a design piece by itself. The Murano blown glass eyeball can be chosen transparent, white or black. Optic was developed and put into production by the Italian company OLuce.
