The T.S.S. (Time Space Sound) Luminaire is inspired by fantasy, time travel and the anthology of an idea. The story begins with an epic daydream of an imaginary meeting between the great minds of Oscar Niemeyer and Olafur Eliasson. A time-space condition has allowed the two creators to meet and discuss the perception-altering qualities of form and color and its impact on the human experience.
The dream fades out of subconsciousness and into conscious reflection and desire to collect the moments leading to this discovery. From Juliette's personal experience of living in Rio de Janeiro to her childhood drawings, she has documented each of these memories in a series of single line illustrations created by LA-based illustrator Will James.
The T.S.S. Luminaire debuted at Salone del Mobile's Salone Satellite during Milan Design Week in 2018 and has been featured in Architectural Digest, Surface Magazine, Marie Claire Maison, Design Milk and the Financial Times. It is available for purchase exclusively at the MoMA Design Store online and in NYC locations.
The T.S.S. Luminaire is made of CNC-milled acrylic and mouth-blown milk glass and is manufactured in Los Angeles, California.
