The story behind the light
Winy Maas and his MVRDV studio are the creators of the entire building concept. Along with all the interior equipment, the initial Concurrency lighting installation concept comes from their workshop. Lasvit designer Jana Růžičková collaborated on developing the idea and making it reality.
Lucidity was a key criterion when inventing the peculiar suspending system which, looked at from below, resembles a printed circuit. Technical solution thus became an element of design. We simply removed everything that wasn’t necessary. All we had left was beauty.
“Such a trifle, and such amount of work!” To embark on producing hand-blown glass which in the end looks like a regular fluorescent tube? But when design rules, who are we to stand in its way?
What is the best way to light individual glass tubes? How to make a single ray of light present for a few brief moments? We looked for the best ways toward light.
“We have lamps hanging everywhere. It is a density of luminaries that come down to you, a fall of a ceiling… and the luminaries then start to make a whirl of light.” Winy Maas of MVRDV studio
