Laura Lynn Jansen and Thomas Vailly's 101.86° shines colourful layers of light at Maison&Objet 2015

101.86°- Colors of the Day is presented during Maison &Object 2015.

Presented during Maison&Objet 2015, designers Laura Lynn Jansen and Thomas Vailly's project 101.86°- Colors of the Day radiates fresh creativity at the Parisian fair.

On the occasion of the September edition of M&O, Paris' hallmark event for current trends in interior design, Vailley presented a vibrant project in collaboration with Jansen. The duo appeared amongst six designers with the Talent à la carte section, focused on promising and emerging talents.

101.86°- Colors of the Day investigates the brilliant nature of light. The scientific and poetical phenomenon can be experienced to the fullest with the object, which resembles an enlarged petri-dish. The technology permits playful combinations of different materials which are treated in order to harness their crystalline qualities, normally visible only under a polarized microscope. Capable of observing the individual mineral units, the viewer can assemble multiple layers of colours and perceive dynamic combinations of light. The exhibition features a modular repetition of many optical layers composing a unique colour pattern, each of them presenting its own dye palette.
