The story behind the light
In the beginning there was a sketch… It all started from a sketch… A sketch is a sketch is a sketch… Well, you know how it goes.
Along with the Mahidol University and the National Bank of Kuwait, this is one of our key dynamic installations. The whole structure is connected to the Opera data network and can be operated from an iPad or a smartphone. Just think what beauty you can hold in the palm of your hand.
Fishing net swirling myriads of opalescent bubbles in the depth of the ocean – such was the image that inspired the Symphony lighting installation. A shining stream composed of tiny hand-blown glass pearls.
Each of the 3000 crystal drops is fitted with a special chip to control the light. Composing crystal and electronic elements was in this case extremely demanding for precision and attention. Especially with so many pieces. But the result is breathtaking.
Light in space
The Symphony installation percolates 3 storeys of the Dubai Opera. The 5-ton light set consists of a net of thousand crystal drops fishing around for symphonies of light.
