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

This Manhattan loft space is located in a building originally constructed as a bank in 1873. Because of this, the space wasn't particularly well set up as a home, but it had enormously large windows, beautiful original woodwork and flooring, and an ornate structural column mostly still in tact.
