SALON/Big Bang: Chris Kabel at the Oude Kerk

SALON/Big Bang: Chris Kabel at the Oude Kerk
Chris Kabel combines an interest in hardcore science with an intuitive, artistic approach to the design
of plain objects that everybody uses in his daily life. After studying biochemistry at the University of
Amsterdam, Industrial Design at the Technical University Delft (both only for a short period), he continued at the Design Academy Eindhoven, where he graduated in 2001 in the department Man and Living.

This lamp by Chris Kabel produces light that is exactly the same as daylight on a sunny day.
Special particles in the resin diffuse the LED light in the same way as the sunlight that enters
the atmosphere. Hence the lamp is blue too, like the sky. The blue light can help in the case of
winter time depression. (photocredits: Mimi Berlin)
