Ti­ipoi launches site-spe­cific light in­stal­la­tion called Kōlam Light

Electronics Bazaar - - Interesting Products -

Ti­ipoi, a Lon­don based life­style brand that takes its in­spi­ra­tion from In­dia, has re­cently un­veiled the Kōlam Light, a new site-spe­cific light in­stal­la­tion at White City Place, West Lon­don. The light, which is made of lay­ered acrylic, will act as an ev­er­chang­ing daily bea­con for work­ers and the wider pub­lic, of­fer­ing a thought-pro­vok­ing wel­come to the site.

Kōlam Light is in­spired by the tra­di­tional south In­dian rit­ual of kōlam, which sees fam­i­lies draw­ing rit­u­al­is­tic pat­terns daily on their thresh­olds to of­fer both a friendly and a spir­i­tual wel­come to their homes. This in­no­va­tive art­work is con­structed from acrylic and LED strip lights, with the cen­tre of the light pat­tern sit­ting at eye height to give the in­stal­la­tion im­pact and depth. This also en­ables the box to be sealed from the weather and pro­vides sta­bil­ity. The Kōlam Light has been de­signed by us­ing lay­ers of acrylic through which a se­ries of strip lights draw a sub­tle pat­tern, tak­ing a dif­fer­ent colour and light path ev­ery day. Cap­tur­ing the spirit and mood of the peo­ple pass­ing by, the kōlam then slowly moves and dis­ap­pears through­out the day, leav­ing space for a new de­sign to ap­pear the next morn­ing.
