Experience the future of lighting! – where product becomes architecture
The breathtaking, accessible installation created by Simon Brünner enables you to witness the future.
When the new Design Fair ‘Qubique’ opened its doors at the Tempelhof airport in Berlin, visitors were in for a special treat – in the truest sense of the word. labme, the open source design platform, newly initiated by Osram, awoke interest from a distance due to its dramatic 6m high cubic structure. The courageous visitors who climbed the ramp and entered the installation took a step toward the future. Soon, OLED technology will not only determine how light is designed and handled, but also become a fundamental part of modern light design.
Installed on a 12m x 12m surface area, the installation was not only accessible, but also interactive. Consisting of more than 1400 light modules, it was the largest installation of its kind. The slender 2mm thick OLED glass light elements could be experienced three dimensionally, which had been exclusively created for the Qubique trade fair. By way of sound and motion sensor techniques, accessing the installation became a sensory sensation making visitors doubt their own perception.
The designer Simon Brünner turns his first OLED luminaire product (Supernova) inside out, from which he manages to create an accessible architectural light installation. The luminaire grows from its inner core outwards to create a sphere. When this principle is reversed, a sphere can be found with rods growing outwards to complete a cubic structure. This is how remarkable architectural perspectives are developed through the simple geometric formation of objects. On entering the installation, the spectator experiences a sensation of shifting dimensions and an unforgettable sensory experience is guaranteed.
OLED modules are characterised by their special illuminating power, together with the flexible arrangement possibilities, and are setting the standards for paving the way into an ecologically balanced future.
GonKirin (Light Dragon) is a mobile installation for the Burningman Festival 2010. It is a collaboration with artist Ryan Doyle in finalizing the aesthetic and form of the dragon. Moreover, linear LED products have been used to create back lit and outline for the piece, Traxon wall washers were implemented to highlight the details on the meticulous details of the dragon infrastructure. The LED programming sequences will evolve each year with various color combo and interactivity.
