In March 2014 design office Kollision [kollision.dk/] won the competition for designing a new interactive tunnel for Design City Kolding in the city of Kolding, Denmark. Kollision named their winning proposal ‘Interference’ based on the idea that urban life is characterized by two opposing trends: an urge to belong and be part of a community and an opposing desire to be alone and anonymous in the middle of the rush. This shaped a dynamic and interactive lighting concept integrated in the tunnel walls that focus on the meeting between people walking through the tunnel. By dynamically creating spaces of light between people in the tunnel, people are made aware of their surroundings. The tunnel was opened September 1st, 2014.
