FOIL at V&A for London Design Festival 2016
On 14, Jul 2017 | In Project | By ADMIN
FOIL was one of the most visited decorative installations of London Design Festival 2016 (LDF). This was on show at the Victoria and Albert (V&A) museum from September – October 2016.
TM Lighting worked closely with Benjamin Hubert of Layer Design to create FOIL. In association with Braun, the huge, rotating sculpture creates an immersive experience around the gallery as it reflects polygons of light across the historic tapestries. The exhibition was also accompanied by an ambient soundscape.
The lighting is the integral part of this undulating sculptural wave. Each lighting element delicately arcs from the sculpture to key locations integral to the decorative element. The light is restrained to only illuminate the face of the mirrored panels, the single focal points from each light source do not overlap, creating clear individual geometric reflections across the darkened historic gallery space. The mesmerising decorative design, the reflected light and shadow, combined with the delicate evocative soundscape made this a memorable and entertaining experience for V&A, LDF and London Biennale visitors.
