In­te­rior de­signer, Ruchi Joshi, re­veals her five favourite de­sign items.

The sev­enth edi­tion of the Am­s­ter­dam Light Fes­ti­val will present works by more than 25 artists, de­sign­ers and ar­chi­tects from 16 coun­tries, shar­ing their in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the theme, ‘ The Medium is the Mes­sage’, in­spired by the fa­mous state­ment by Cana­dian sci­en­tist and philoso­pher, Mar­shall McLuhan. All par­tic­i­pat­ing art­works will be lit si­mul­ta­ne­ously dur­ing the 53-day-long fes­ti­val. The um­brella ex­hi­bi­tion will take place in the his­tor­i­cal cen­tre of Am­s­ter­dam, which can be ex­pe­ri­enced in dif­fer­ent ways: by boat, by bike or on foot. This year, for the first time, vis­i­tors can vote for their favourite light art­work. The Pub­lic Award will be pre­sented to the artist of the win­ning art­work in the last week­end of the fes­ti­val. Par­tic­i­pat­ing artists will fo­cus on ques­tions such as, what role does light play as a medium or a mes­sage? And how can light cre­ate spa­ces that would oth­er­wise have re­mained in­vis­i­ble? The city of Am­s­ter­dam as a medium for telling sto­ries is also a cen­tral part of this edi­tion. Some of the par­tic­i­pat­ing de­sign­ers in­clude Ya­suhiro Chida from Ja­pan, Groupe Laps from France, Piet Hume and Femke Schapp from the Nether­lands. www.am­s­ter­dam­light­fes­ti­val.com
