    Finn Magee graduated with a ba in Industrial Design from the National College of Art and Design, Ireland in 2004 and completed his ma in Design Products at the Royal College of Art (rca) in London. Finn’s rca show investigated the potential of advertising tech-niques in product design. His awareness of social context and values associated with products gives Finn a unique voice in the field.
    Magee’s Flat Life project was inspired by the Anglepoise task light on his desk. Magee wondered if a two-dimensional print was capable of recreateing the ambient mood of an actual angle poise lamp as well as serve the function. Magee’s Flat Light successfully tested his theory and he continued exploring the theme of ambient function in the Flat Clock series. The colours are based on the powder coating finishes used to treat the metal parts of desk lamps.The RAL colour references are RAL 3028 (Pure red), 6037 (Pure green), 5015 ( Sky blue) and RAL 1003 (Signal yellow).Each colour is handmade in the UK in an edition of 50.
