Arnout Meijer graduated from the Man and Activity Department of the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2012. His latest work continues his research into the perception of light and the role it plays in forming our understanding of space. Rather than focusing on the object, Meijer’s design process begins with an understanding of light and its potential to shape an experience that changes depending on one’s spatial position. His light objects are simultaneously light installations.
Alongside developing series of lamps, Meijer published the short essay ‘The Realism of Illusion’, which describes how optical illusions are not just temporary exceptions but rather the fundamental basis for shaping reality as we see it.
