Light Tunnel: Light Installation WAVEFRAME
WaveFrame is the first of a series of installations based on RGB LED tubes and a new software development line.
Installed for the DGTL festival in August 2016 in Barcelona, WaveFrame parasites a public sculpture formed by square arches for a total length of around 70 meters, creating a light tunnel where people could stand and pass by.
Using oscillator generated pixel textures, wave forms fill the led tubes with oscillating light. When delayed from one arch to the other, light creates perspective and time effects, reinforcing the idea of traveling inside a tunnel.

A new five-metre high interactive installation responds to the built environment of the Victoria Cross intersection in North Sydney and will be a great selfie spot. The sculptural form, angles of incidence, is composed of differently angled planes of a reflective, interactive, safety glass referencing the multiplicity of reflections on a faceted surface. Says Davis: “The dialogue between the sculpture and its surroundings is a metaphor for the ‘interactions’ that have happened on this site from its pre-colonial past to the commercial and entertainment precinct it is now.” By night, it changes from a reflective form into a glowing icon, a marker point, a location finder, an announcement. A blue LED light source creates a glowing icon of extraordinary visual beauty. Blue is the colour of calm and of infinity, a reference to the past, present and future importance of this site as a place of social and physical intersection/convergence.
L&L is the technical sponsor of the artistic installation Wave/Cave on display at the INTERNI Material Immaterial exhibition in the Cortile d’Onore courtyard of the University of Milan as part of the FuoriSalone 2017.
The installation, designed by the New York firm SHoP Architects, evokes the idea of geological time marked by the different eras. It uses 1670 blocks of unglazed terracotta to create 797 profiles on 3 levels, alluding to the idea of rock stratification.
The lighting, designed by PHT Lighting Design, brings out the beauty and porous nature of the material and creates a play of volumes between the façade, compact and regular, and the interior, which reveals a surprisingly rich ornamentation.
For this installation, L&L supplied 89 FLORI 1.0 projectors, which were positioned on the external perimeter and between the strata of the interior.
The chosen outdoor lighting fixtures have 15° optics, a 2700K warm white light colour, and anthracite finish.

We know that Christmas is long over. However, this electrifying Swedish commercial still deserves some attention. It is about a solar panel system that can store energy - and to underline this message an over-the-top Christmas light installation was used to underline that you can use electricity with a clean conscience. SGM LED fixtures which are known for their low power consumption and eco-friendliness therefore matched that message perfectly. Lighting Designer, Peter “Tintin” Jörgensen, applied SGM P-5 wash lights outside the building to cover up the facade and several units of their little brother, the P-2, were placed inside to highlight the windows. He explained:
“Besides the low power consumption, it was important that the fixtures had a high IP rating as some of them were installed outside. I also needed a great green and red color output to underline the Christmas theme - and I knew that the P-2 and the P-5 were able to deliver just that. I was very satisfied with their performance and their contribution to the final result.”

360 pcs. of LT-200 LED tubes were used for a big art installation at the bridge of Port the Flandre, created by Light Designer Jean-Jacques Marotte. It was one of 11 artworks that lit up Brussels during the Bright Brussels Winter project that took place from 2 December 2016 to 5 February 2017.
Marotte had creative freedom to form his contribution to the project. It was important to him to celebrate this crossroads between two populations and the Brussels canal. He ended up with a concept of an illuminated bridge that connected the two sides of the river. Four lines of LED lights span the breadth of the water, spawning waves of light 15 metres in the air. He chose to LT-200 LED tubes from SGM:
“I was looking for a product that had a 360° viewing angle. It was also crucial with a solution that was IP65-rated because of the rainy and snowy weather circumstances and because of the fact that it had to stay outdoors for two months.”
Via WIFI, he was able to control the pixel mapping from a distance. Marotte has a long track record, using LT-100/LT-200 in his installations:
“Indeed, I know the product very well and have already used it several times in TV, where the actual output is very important. In this case, the clear advantage for me was that the product’s IP65-rating allowed me to control it without the need of any extra rain cover.”
