Flynn Talbot is an Australian lighting designer, who has created a new interactive light object called X&Y. This product allows people to touch and control the power of the light and choose their own favourite lighting colour. See more;
"The polished brass base contains all the LEDs and technology and is not connected to the the hand-blown opal glass sphere. The sphere simply sits on the base and is supported by a ring of felt. It can be rolled in any direction to determine the intensity and colour of the light from the illuminated base. The object takes its name from the X&Y axes - the horizontal “X” axis controls the colour and the vertical “Y” axis defines the brightness. The sphere produces light in a range of cool to warm white tones and a full colour spectrum." - Yatzer
Recomended see also his other projects called Horizonts, their colored gradients remind me some works of James Turrell.
