Breath of Light is an interactive installation which responds to your breath. It creates various effects and a unique play of light. For this feat it reaped the greatest award, the RED DOT, “Best of the Best”. The design was made by creative directors of Preciosa Lighting, Michael Vasku and Andreas Klug.
Breathing of light is a certain kind of behaviour, not a static animation. This means that every time someone breathes “life” into the installation, the light moves in a slightly different way. The dynamic light effect is never the same, unlike a recurring animation, played over and over. What is interesting is to repeatedly watch its behaviour, not to mention the fact that when "life" is given to it by another person, it also creates an effect or two people playing together.
We had the opportunity to ask the creators the following questions:
The installation was made in 6 weeks. It was first introduced earlier this year at the Salone del Mobile in Milan.
This is best captured by a feeling of awe and then a huge dose of joy.
The installation is designed for hotel lobbies and other representative spaces. This year we are planning to exhibit it during the Dubai Design Week.
We are very pleased for the whole team involved in the creation of the installation.
Now we are to take a part in the Monaco Yacht Show where we are to introduce another interactive installation entitled Pearl Wave.
We can say that the breath for us is a poetic, albeit unconventional way of interaction between objects and people. With breathing, but also with inhaling and exhaling is associated a number of rituals. Just imagine blowing off a candle. We have turned this idea around, telling ourselves that this year, we will give our lights some life. And to this purpose we adapted the overall technical solution of our installation.
