the search of the glow

Via Designboom is this beautiful art installation by Ling-Li Tseng and Serendipity Studio for the Taiwan lantern festival. I include this design on Lucept because it so elegantly showcases the dual revolutions of LED flex strips and high-efficacy LEDs. Let’s not take for granted the perfectly uniform lines of rich, golden warm-white light, the compound curves, the cut-to-length sizing, the ingress protection, all of which are so elegantly and discretely mounted directly into natural, bent wooden strips. 4-5 years ago, this simply wasn’t possible.

There is sustainable revolution waiting to happen in lighting, and this project is another fantastic example of the possibility.

for 31 years, the taiwan lantern festival has been illuminating cities around the country, becoming one of the biggest tourism events in taiwan. following the theme, artist ling-li tseng, in collaboration with serendipity studio, created a light installation called ‘the search of the glow’. set amidst the forest, the minimalist, spectral installation boast a sphere shape made of wooden ovals. the inside of this structure is covered in LED tubes, exuding a glow that covers the forest. this glow transforms into a mist that guides visitors into the temporary light pavilion.
