The talented designer Vasileios Roumeliotis gives light to old and ordinary objects and transforms them into beautiful innovative lighting installations. His creations were exhibited from 15 May to 21 May 2015 at the exhibition ‘SuppARTing Students’ ,that was held in Tucker Robbins and Cliff Young galleries (suites 504 and 505) in the New York Design Center. Sixty-five Greek and foreign artists from different types of fine arts –such as painting, digital painting, pyrography, sculpture, engraving, cartoonist, lighting art, collage etc. – offered their artworks to support the great social project ‘suppARTing students’, aiming all proceeds to be allocated to three hundred malnourished students from twenty-five elementary schools of Thessaloniki, Greece. Wheel Light The lighted wheel is a wall light created from a recycled bicycle wheel and represents an alternate eco-sportive way of transportation and a excellent enlightened forward movement full of inventive ideas and creativity. Margarita StrawberryMargarita Strawberry:Music, drinks and a touch of retro constitute this ceiling light fixture creating an instant party mood. While three glowing margaritas are being served on a turntable playing top hits of the strawberry mix, everyday objects have once again been skilfully unified to a unique creation to light the mood up.
CoffelightStainless steel, tea and espresso demitasse cups installed along a spiral iron tube resembling a huge car spring make up this installation. The use of 5 MR11 and 2 MR16 dimmable spots alter the aura from luminous to romantic. The dangling spoons hanging empty portray the enjoyment of the strong taste and pure flavour of coffee and tea, sugar + sweetener free.
Femme Saturne Inspired by interplay between the enigmatic planet Saturn and a woman’s curves, this table lamp creates a “tease” through dimmable lighting breasts while our lady’s most peculiar hat provides a mysterious sentiment. Re-used objects found in our day-to-day life compose this innovative fixture. A mannequin doll, illuminated glass balls and lattice are masterly combined and reinvented into the Femme Saturne lighting installation.
