Angled Walnut-Veneered “Pixels” Shaping A Light-Defined Installation
Playing with light is not only fun, but also helps develop creativity. Choosing an innovative way of expressing this playfulness can be quite challenging, but the results are worth it, especially in the case of Giles Miller Studio. The London-based design practice composed for Clerkenwell Design Week an interesting installation made out of identical laser-cut wood hexagons. These individual pieces were angled to reflect light while shaping a delightful pattern. Composing a fascinating archway that plays with light, the studio focusing on creating innovative surfaces designed the intricate 20,000 wooden archway inside the gates of a 150 year old former merchant’s warehouse. As part of the three-day festival celebrating design, this creative installation found on VisualNews communicates a light-guided pixelation adapted to the classic architecture displayed by the building. Hand-placed on wedges, each hexagonal walnut-veneered pixel has its own purpose and bounces light to create the overall design – can you not call this innovative?
