With Guise, Stefan Diez has discovered a new potential use for LED technology in contact with matter: The light emanates from the piece of glass, while the source remains invisible. With this approach, Guise achieves a magical effect
and, at the same time, is fully functional. Because of the transparency of the glass when switched off, the lamp almost disappears. When switched on, it expresses a luminous and almost magnetic presence.
A pattern of engraved incisions made in the borosilicate glass, created using a robotic cutting technique, refracts, radiates, and reflects the light brilliantly. The LED source is located longitudinally as if it were a seam, almost imperceptible.
Stefan Diez was inspired by several traditional techniques, Bohemian glass cutting and luminous street signage, which are combined here in a unique contemporary vision. Together with its innovative technology, Guise achieves an almost virtual light.
