The doodle of light

A playful lighting installation which adds a dash of flash now shines in the spaces of the Equinox hotel in the Hudson Yards. Follow the lines of light, and step into a place that has the power to define the fitness lifestyle of future.


Lightings strike

The design concept is called The Flash. “Imagine the moment when lighting strikes. The moment when shining lines cut the sky and grow further until they visually touch the ground. The light lights up the surroundings and the wave of energy and ozone can be felt in the air,“ says Wanda Valihrachová about her initial idea for the project.

The story behind the light


Design story

“I wanted to capture the clear lines of light, the speed of the wind and the smell of electricity in the air during a storm. I wanted to capture all of this and materialize it in a lighting installation tailor-made for the exquisite interiors of the Equinox Hotel,” adds young designer.


Modern technology

This project is made from special lighting tubes with customized LED chips. LASVIT’s engineers had found a way to bend these tubes, and thus opened a whole new space for possibilities and creative solutions. The tubes can change colour, so it is possible to set the mood of the space differently each time.


Overall design concept

The overall design concept was developed by various famous designers, including the Rockwell Group and David Rockwell personally.


Connect to the light

Whatever surrounds us helps us become who we want to be. The lighting installation Flash represents any goal which Equinox’s clients have in mind – to be strong, to be fast, to always be one step ahead…
