For the 2016 edition of Wallpaper*Handmade – the Hotel Wallpaper* – we were invited to collaborate with the Luminous Patterns venture of Philips Lighting. Exploring this fully customizable architectural lighting-system, we have created the dynamic luminous Light Forest installation.
Inspired by the sunlight shining through the woods, the panels, covered by a patchwork of 3M synthetic fine wood surface resemble an abstract, dense forest. The warm white LED lights randomly illuminate the wall through three-dimensional cuts, resulting in a mesmerizing, unexpected effect of movement through a play of light and shadows.
The realistic and warm appearance of the synthetic materials and lights used in Light Forest emphasize the relations between the man-made and nature.
