SKin is an organic light fixture inspired by nature and its resources. It is designed to celebrate a diverse natural material grown by bacteria during the fermentation process of Kombucha, a probiotic drink made of fermented tea and honey.
Illuminated by a metal plate with an LED strip facing upwards, SKin appears glowing while floating in space. The contrast between the organic form of the structure and the linearity of the plates is grounding. It is designed this way to be visually orienting, providing an experience of warmth and serenity in a space, bringing us back to nature.
