The story behind the light
On a Corner of Design and Technology
For the first time, Lasvit integrated LED screens with projection techniques to heighten the sensory experience of the installation. "Our main projection revolves around the theme of falling water, but we've incorporated a variety of aquatic moods, such as ocean waves and sunrays reflecting in the water," Jana explains, leading to the apt naming of the piece—H20.
Unique Texture of Glass
Surrounding the LED screens are vast vertical slump glass sheets, fashioned to mimic the cascading water. Lasvit's team achieved a unique texture on the glass using a 3D printed hand roller, a tool developed in-house. This monumental artwork comprises 140 of these slump glass sheets.
A notable challenge during installation was the venue's all-glass staircase. Ensuring its preservation, the team crafted custom scaffolding tailored to fit within the staircase—showcasing meticulous planning and execution in mounting the installation.
