Stavros Kotsakis is an autodidact light artist and luminaire designer based in Gothenburg, Sweden.
With the purpose to explore the endless adventures of light while interacting with fascinating materials, Stavros is dedicated in producing series of exclusive light objects with a playful radiance.
The overall process can be described as solving a puzzle where Stavros intends to match the unique properties of different materials with the right form of light, while keeping the overall structure simple, functional and attractive. The aim is to create a visual experience that tells a story.
Putting light into the center point of the development process allows the creative journey from form to function to happen. Becoming itself part of symmetrical structures or transformed objects, light is being naturally turned into a basic element for geometry. The interplay between the tangible geometry and the fragility of light aims to create a sense of apparent imbalance. This state invites the viewers to question visual perception and therefore relate to their personal experiences and beliefs.
