RAY OF LIGHT

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The News -

A larger-than-life col­lab­o­ra­tion with Louis Vuit­ton, French artist Daniel Buren coloured all 3,600 pieces of the Frank Gehry-de­signed build­ing’s em­blem­atic glass sails. Awashed in a bril­liant dis­play of mes­meris­ing hues, the Fon­da­tion Louis Vuit­ton is per­ceived in a whole new light—al­ter­nat­ing and chang­ing with the time and day of the sea­son. This isn’t the artist’s first part­ner­ship with the mai­son, how­ever. In 2012, the artist de­signed the lux­ury la­bel’s Spring/Sum­mer ’13 set, brought es­ca­la­tors to The Lou­vre’s court­yard, and com­pleted it with yel­low checks and hor­i­zon­tal stripes.
