Tension Beams

Harnessing the versatility of the original SHY Beams series, Brittain has explored new ways of restructuring space with light. Tension Beams evolve this concept with interlocking oil rubbed bronze with glass diffusers, which are then suspended between the floor and ceiling. When grouped in parallel, the lights can create the effect of a floating screen or be spaced apart to create a more sculptural effect.

The Resolute series is drawn from Bec Brittain’s solo show at The Future Perfect, her first since 2013 and the first at our New York gallery. Characterized by a new sense of confidence, Brittain’s work is at once harmonious and instinctive. By introducing a new visual vocabulary, focusing on the interplay between mirrors, metals and glass, Brittain has created the essential components that can be customized in myriad ways, making up site-specific installations and large scale commissions.

Tension Beams are designed for custom commissions.
