On Hanukkah in Brussels, the lighting art installation Stalactite designed by designers TETRO+A and WHITEvoid immediately attracted the attention of many audiences when the curtain opened.

360 tube lights change into different colors and shapes in the rhythm of electronic music. The lighting setting presents a diamond-like line as a whole, which brings malleable technological colors visually.


The design of Stalactite, just like its name, is a stalactite, a drop of water falling from the crystal; it cooperates with music to form a dynamic aesthetic sensory experience, and it is the perfect connection between modern technology and light and shadow, presenting a time and space Futuristic sense.


When the surroundings are still dark, it discards all irrelevant elements and focuses on pure audiovisual enjoyment. What's different is that the audience, as a creative factor, constitutes a dynamic part of this work, becoming a drop of light under the brilliance, and truly integrating lighting art into life.


The complex shapes formed by the lamps of different angles become agile and imposing under the rhythmic flashing effect and light animation. This art installation presents the mystery of the distant and deep stalactite wrapped in the city at night.

Nyx Bar


Shanghai’s Nyx bar, located on the roof of a building in the city center, bears the name "Goddess of Night" in Greek mythology. The wrapped UV light line is designed to look like a future city, looking to the future in the modern and fashionable nightlife.

The Nyx bar is inspired by the relics of classical architecture, but it can break out of the shackles in the background of the busy highway, forming a surreal experience.


The 2100-meter-long UV light source line sets up the space frame of Nyx, combining sound, light and space structure. The dark, stable and bright blue light contrasts well with the mobile lights of the surrounding highways. It keeps quiet while moving, and expresses the understanding of futurism along with the light and the setting space.


Through the visual perception of the space created by the light, Alberto Caiola uses clear color lines to decorate the light tubes. The abstract lights are like cables in a new city, using the wonderful colors of science fiction films to draw the focus of the city boundary.


The shape of the lamp tube and the light complement each other, and the blue-purple color will periodically change to a warm red. The interior is cleverly designed with illuminated faucets to supply a variety of hand-brewed beers.

The light-feeling arches further shorten the distance between indoors and outdoors, and you are suddenly placed in another dimension of space, so that people can enjoy the wonderful stimulation of the senses.


This kind of lighting design embodies the openness in the aesthetic sense, and makes Shanghai, a city that never sleeps singing every night, warm and exciting.

At the 3rd Amsterdam Light Festival, Dutch design company Serge Schoemaker Architects & Digiluce hand-built a light cube with a height of 4 meters and a circumference of 12 meters.

The lighting device uses a total of 320 strings of light units, and each string of light units has 6 bulbs. As a result, the artwork and the audience can produce a negative chemical reaction, and people can go deep into it and experience the fascinating lighting effects.

Under the inspiration of the designer, the intensity of lighting can be constantly changed. Every single linear tube is composed of two LED light sources wrapped in acrylic tube. The light atmosphere created by nearly 2000 lights is a wonderful geometric space when viewed from any angle.

In the passage of Alley of Light, the space and sense of space constantly change with the intensity of light, and the wave motion of light produces a unique spatial experience.

When the light is bright, the city impression created becomes closed and safe. But if the lights are dim, the space becomes smooth, the boundaries of alleys begin to fade, and the city becomes mysterious and far-reaching.

When installing this artistic lighting installation, the music of Machinefabriek / Rutger Zuydervelt reverberated. At this time, vision and hearing are once again combined with technological art design, which gives the real meaning of lighting art.

The lighting art designer cleverly grasped the atmosphere of this square and designed 20 LED-illuminated circular swings as part of "Swing Time".

These luminous ring swings are suspended on a small steel structure, and LED lights are embedded in it, allowing the smooth lines to perfectly blend with the lawn.

However, it is worth mentioning that the designer used a different kind of coding program to make these ring swings show a soft white light when they are completely still, lighting up the briskness of the lawn.

With the swing of the swing, the microcontroller changes the light from white to blue to purple, expressing movement with more vivid colors. Such a magical light effect change can also make people's heart beat faster.
