Inspired with the relationship between the moon and the sun, Yoshizoe's mobile called 1.625m/s2 reflects the light of one simple bulb via mirror.
It consists of a series of suspended mirrors that reflect light to illuminate the surrounding space. If placed near window, it can also reflect light directly from the sun.
The mobile is called 1.625m/s2, which is the downwards acceleration caused by the moon's gravity on a falling body.
Royal Tapestry Factory in Madrid, founded in 1721, gets the makeover with innovative and fascinating new lighting.
Light & Studio designed lighting for this 4000 m2 property, inspired by the work of the ancient artisans who have gone through the workshops of the Royal Tapestry Factory of Madrid.
Its objective was the construction of a bridge between tradition and innovation, between the old and the new, a bridge that unites this factory working since 1721 and the coworking space for innovation companies that has been created between its walls, the Loom House.
The design is based on methacrylate tubes installed at different heights to create those crosses that resemble textile patterns. More than 200m of digital LED strips controlled point by point, run through these tubes making different scenes and tours, led by light.
It has been possible thanks to 3 controllers of 64 universes each, connected to a software made to measure for the project, images are launched in real time, generating different atmospheres.
The programming is integrated in a Dali system that allows to handle, through a touch screen, both the digital lighting and the rest of the lighting in the room. This system also allows adjusting the lighting to natural light that enters through the windows throughout the day to respect our biorhythms.

I was so drawn into this type of visuals.
They make me wonder.
What is light without the shadow.
Is it a metaphor, feeling or maybe something not so abstract. Is it real.
Why do we strive for order, repetition, hierarchy.
What does the high contrast, rigidness and structure represent in our lives.
Do we feel safe there. Can we find something similar in nature.
Are we running away from it or is this something necessary in order to survive.
The theme for this year's edition is 'the medium is the message'. Have a look how artist around the world contributed to this years Light Festival in Amsterdam.

FontanaArte is an Italian lighting brand founded in Milan in 1932 by Luigi Fontana & Gio Ponti. In just over thirty years FontanaArte became the most outstanding company specialized in the use of glass in lighting and furnishings, and also remarkable for its modern design and perfect craftsmanship.
This great success was owed to the three artistic directors who guided the company: Gio Ponti, memorable for being the first to have intuited the immense potential of glass applied to new lighting systems and furnishings. Pietro Chiesa, the true supporter of the worldwide success of the brand, a man of exceptional artistic culture, able to move between the most avant-garde modernism and the purest, most refined decoration. Max Ingrand, who joined Fontana Arte after Chiesa’s death and the end of the First World War, and brought FontanaArte back to life, updating its productions and leading it into the design world as we conceive it today even though he never betrayed the inheritance of the masters who preceded him.
