Concept
 
The right to see a color by its true way. Daltonism (color blindness) is a disease that 8% of the world population endure. A disability that affects everyday life activities on thousands of people.
 
There are different levels in which this problem affects people and also a number of colors that are impossible for them to see properly, some of them are: red, blue and green.
 
Purple means: peace, conscience, wisdom, etc. It’s also one of the only colors that people with daltonims can see in its right way. This project is the combination between red and blue pigments which are not perceptible for their eyes but when in combination provides "the right color", this means the right all people deserve to appreciate a color in its most natural way.
Construction
 
Blown glass lamps, handcrafted by hand. All the glass used was recycled and the pigments applied for getting this purple color was the combination of red and blue; an ambient light to create an environment in different spaces.
Materials

-Glass                          90%
-Chacte Viga Wood   10%
Mission
 
This lamps represent clouds of communication, objects to illuminate everyone´s right to see a color and above all, wake up conscience for other people who don’t know about color blindness in order to respect each other.
