Bright Idea: Hans Schepker Lighting
Math and fun are two words you don’t usually see together in the same sentence. But Hans Schepker makes it happen with his “mathematically correct lighting and sculpture.” He starts with a geometric shape — a cube, for example — and then repeats it until he gets the desired overall effect. Move around the lamp and you’ll see ripples in the stained-glass panels, shadows cast from one pane to another, and how the light throws the colors on the wall and ceiling. Pictured here is a compound of five octahedrons ($1,100). Available from Glass Geometry, Harrisville, New Hampshire. 603-827-3014; hansschepker.com
