In Transit: NYC is the first in a series of laser-cut, edge-lit abstractions of iconic subway maps.

The fixture comprises several overlapped, clear acrylic panels, each panel featuring an edge-lit, schematic representation of a single NYC Subway line. The overlapping collection of panels together create an abstract representation of the iconic NYC Subway map, where each line is individually illuminated and animated to create a dynamic display representing the arteries of the busy metropolis.
