The Silverback light for Danish design collective KiBiSi is an example of a new, redesigned way to create an interface between architectural space and light.
Designed by Louis Poulsen, the Silverback is a new wall and ceiling fixture that’s neither integrated, nor flashy.
Silverback has a soft water drop-like shape that seamlessly combines a metallic part with an opal white diffuser. The metallic part of Silverback serves as a mirror on the surface on which the light in mounted.
The designers explain that the “mirroring effect gives a unique morphed experience regardless of the background surface, structure, color or material and has so to say unlimited applicability”.
