American designer Bec Brittain is the mastermind behind the SHY light, a geometric light fitting that has a highly adaptable shape. Brittain, who studied industrial design at Parsons, earned a BA in philosophy from New York University, before gaining an architecture degree from The Architectural Association in London, chose the name of the light by combining her grandmother’s initials.
By using thin LED tubes, the function of Brittain’s light fitting creates its form and vice versa. She was inspired by the shape of crystalline structures and the way that they grow so the light mimics this. The modular hardware can be configured in a number of ways and new shapes can be created depending on the requirements of the room in which it is to be used.
The light can also be hung in any orientation or for those who prefer, it is also available as a floor lamp.
