This led to Flat Light, which has been exhibited at the Royal College of Art Summer show in 2007 and as part of Designers in Residence at the Design Museum, London"
The Flat Light Poster, which uses LEDs that don't heat up and cause a fire hazard, is available from moss for $195 in a limited run of just 50 pieces.
