‘Stained Plastic’ wall light is a contemporary translation of the stained glasses. Stained glass was not only aesthetically beautiful but also the symbol of the era. It represented the style of the architecture, culture and religion. Therefore, not only the visual language, but also the reflection of the contemporary context was highly considered in designing of the ‘Stained Plastic’. As a designer who was born and raised in a hectic 21st Century city, I wanted to show my abstract interpretation of the city with this work. By using the artificial materials, I reflect to the urban contexts of the city and using the photoelasticity effect, it expresses the dramatic and effective feel of the refined facade but dynamic inner structures of the city.
