A Refraction of Colour



A Refraction of Colour

The 'New Burlington Flare'... a great photo opportunity

Location: 222 New Burlington Place

Description: New Burlington Street is next to Heddon Street off Regent Street and there we find the New Burlington Flare, commonly known as the 3 prisms.

Commissioned by Crown Estates and created by Michael Bleyenberg it is based on holographic elements.

Light foils designed by the artist are embedded between glass and mirrors. As a result of refraction a colour play is created with a rainbow effect.

It makes for a really spectacular photo!
