Light Shift Collection by Suzanne Tick

Nominee
Light, and how it interacts, awakens new perspectives and shapes user experience. Access to natural light imbues a feeling of atmosphere and boundaries with its mood-setting properties and vast spectrum of shifting hues. As we return to the workplace, facilitating cross-pollination and the sharing of new ideas remains essential to workplace wellbeing. The Light Shift collection grants the new workspaces of today greater comfort and unification through its textural energy and modern palette, inspired by the properties of light. This experience allows a shift in perspective, guiding new ways of working we have yet to see fully evolve. Just as this cross-pollination of people light’s properties awaken us to new ideas and perspectives, the Light Shift Collection from Suzanne Tick celebrates the fresh awakening that comes with the dawn of a new decade. Drawing inspiration from scientific studies of light waves and frequencies, as well as man-made phenomena like light trails and reflections from architectural facades, the collection interprets the profound ways light changes throughout the day to dramatically shape our experience of a space and influence us as interconnected beings. “Light is the easiest point of entry to the senses. As a little girl, I remember watching light reflect off of water during the day, and transition to the light of the moon and glistening of the stars at night. Light plays and displays all the time. It makes us aware that everything is a part of the unified.” - Suzanne Tick With its organic texture and saturated colors, the Light Shift pattern's subtle, atmospheric pattern seems to absorb light in some places, while bringing it to the surface in others, ultimately distributing glowing color equally across the modular pattern, and creating the effect of planes of color. Parallel Ray explores the synergy of color and texture in a pattern of broken, parallel lines. The play of light between the dark and mid-tones creates contrast and a feeling of movement, while the scattered, broken lines create a larger textural pattern. Glint This coordinating LVT expresses the color and pattern of light seen in the digital realm, relating the layered visual patterns seen in technological light conversions. The loosely overlapping, linear grids of dissolving rectangles, in both neutral and bright colors, display a change in kinetic energy though space to create a layered effect
