LOTUS DOME is a living dome made out of hundreds of smart flowers which fold open in response to human behavior. It was placed in Sainte Marie Madeleine Church in Lille LOTUS DOME where it created an interactive play of light and shadow. As a futuristic vision of the Renaissance, LOTUS DOME merges elements of architecture and nature into an interactive environment. LOTUS is also realized as a curved 4 x 2 meters wall.
A series of lightings that combines technology with tradition. Knitting acrylic threads in fixed patterns with wool crochet, creates a three-dimensional sheet of fabric which serves as a lighting fixture. The project was born from a collaboration between the designers Ariel Zuckerman and Oded Sapir . The process of developing the fabric, with the aid of textile designer Adva Bruner, led to the combination of an industrial knitted fabric with a handmade crochet detail. Fitting the fabric onto a rigid skeletal structure creates a light fixture with an organic feel and a rich colourfulness.
GATES OF LIGHT brings the monumental structures on the Afsluitdijk (legendary Dutch dike built in 1932) back to their former glory. In the dark, the architecture of these structures is illuminated by the headlamps of passing cars, reflecting the light through small prisms. If there are no cars on the road, the structures are not illuminated. This way of using light requires zero energy and does not contribute to light pollution.
