Lux Pacis – Design Metaphor for a Better World

Lux Pacis - Design Metaphor for a Better World (1)

In the fifth edition of Design Days Dubai fair, Amarist Studio exhibited several special designs reflecting the social, economic and war-related conflicts that envelop today’s world.

For the occasion, Amarist specifically created a piece to be presented at Design Days Dubai 2016; Lux Pacis, an illuminated missile metaphor of a better world. A projectile filled with light, innocence and hopeful anticipation offering a glimpse of a brighter future. The explosive launches the message of reconstruction and reconciliation of cultures, marking the beginning of the new artwork that the studio is preparing for this year.

The total value of Lux Pacis will be donated entirely to the World Peace Forum in support to their work in building a better world in peace.

Lux Pacis is honed from translucent white alabaster and backlit with LED light symbolizing purity and innocence, a concrete ruin as a witness of past conflicts and a blooming rose as a sign of life and hope.

To Amarist, capturing these transformative moments in original pieces makes us witnesses to history, leads us to reflect on the present, and invites us to paint a better future. Courtesy of Amarist

Atop a ridge in the Santa Lucia mountains of Carmel, California, an oak tree stands elevated above the fog and wrapped at its base in this ranch retreat. The weekend home’s design grew around the 100-year-old Valley Oak to form a horseshoe-shaped house that gathers ridgeline views of Oak, Madrone, and Redwood groves at its exterior and nestles around the tree at its center.
