Two sides of Trueing

Only a year into their collaborative practice, the design duo Trueing has already begun to attract the attention of the New York design world. Made up of Josh Metersky and Aiden Bowman, they are the recipient of the 2017 ICFF Emerging Design award on the strength of their Janus table lamp, a delicate gold hemisphere that resembles a miniature floor-standing globe with a single plane in the place of a sphere. Within a glowing ring-mount is suspended a gimbaling shade of dichroic glass — a material produced by stacking layers of glass interleaved with micro-layers of metal oxides to produce an effect of shifting colors.
