Paul James, editor, writes: The last time I had felt such numbness at the passing of a true industry great was
when Jonathan Speirs finally lost his battle to cancer. Then we knew it was coming, but it was Jonathans young
age (54) and the knowledge that he had so much more to give that was the real sickener. And I considered him
my friend. The news that Zaha Hadid has suddenly died of a heart attack at the age of 65 came as a complete
shock. I was not her friend, I had only met her once, but the feeling that we had genuinely lost a design genius
who would have gone on to create reams of magnificent work was once again prevalent. In my opinion there is
not another architect who did more to promote creative lighting design, both in terms of her encouragement of lighting design as a
profession and as a result of her flowing architecture. We were actually working on a profile of her to publish later in the year. With this
very sad news we have pushed this forward to come up with a tribute to her with input from some of the lighting designers that worked with
her. Weve also dedicated the front cover to her work. I hope you find it inspirational.
This month we officially launched the 2016 darc awards. The major change in the format is that we are splitting the awards into
architectural (with the event taking place in London on September 15th) and decorative (with the event taking place in London in May
2017). So please go to and follow the architectural site to enter your architectural lighting projects and products.
If you have any decorative projects and products that you are desperate to enter then youll just have to wait a little longer before the
decorative section is opened. Like last year, the awards will be decided on by the independent architectural lighting design community
to avoid any bias and, although I have noted that parts of our awards have already been copied, I am confident in the claim that both the
awards process and event is the most original out there. Get entering and best of luck!

Helen Fletcher, deputy editor, writes: This issue, Light+Building is still firmly on our minds. As my first time
attending, it was an all-round great experience. Having the opportunity to meet with people I have (up until
this point) only ever talked to by email was very beneficial and it was great to learn about all the projects some
of you are currently involved in - so to everyone who made the time to meet with me, thank you! It was also
great to see real enthusiasm for what were trying to achieve here at mondo*arc.
Youll notice that this issue follows on from our Light+Building preview in issue 89, with a full report on the
tradeshow: product launches, stand events, designer profiles, the Design+ Awards and more! Our technology contributor Geoff
Archenhold also gives us his thoughts on the show; unfortunately this year he found the experience underwhelming, with a lack
of true innovation on display. There was much talk about smart lighting over the course of the week, with solutions on display
everywhere. However, as Geoff notes, in the rush to launch smart lighting systems there hasnt been many real installations of
notable scale, thus leaving end-users in the precarious position of being Guinea pigs. You can read more on this from page 134
onwards. One area that was still quite prevalent at Light+Building and continues to impress is OLED technology, with exhibitors
demonstrating why there is still a need for OLED lighting. Fusing design and technology, unique, stylish and functional lighting
fixtures can be produced. Elsewhere in our show review, David Morgan talks us through his best of show, which can be found on
page 124.

This design by the young Japanese designer Daisuke Kitagawa fits in with the
minimalist philosophy of Japanese design culture but in a contemporary way.
The result is a sleek but decorative fixture in a traditional cone shape and an
elegant black soft-touch surface. This suspended fixture can create a variety
of lighting moods thanks to its adjustable head (rotates 360, tilts 180) and
adjustable height. NOD can be used to illuminate a wall, counter, or ceiling
depending on your projects requirements. SEE THE LIGHT.

Windlicht, Kinderdijk, Netherlands
Windlicht (Windlight), the latest work of Studio Roosegaarde, is a dance of bright lines between the windmills of Dutch
village Kinderdijk. Special software and tracking technology detects the windmill blades rotating at 280km/hour. At the same
time, green lines of light connect the blades, creating a dynamic play of light and movement. Daan Roosegaarde, Founder of
Studio Roosegaarde explained: Windlicht creates the missing link between the Dutch and the beauty of our new landscape.
Inspired by Kinderdijk, Roosegaarde sees these windmills - dating back to 1740 - as a perfect example of Dutch innovation.
Additionally, he is driven by the reconnection with the landscape and creation of a positive image around green energy.
Developed together with a team of designers and engineers, Windlicht is supported by ICT services specialist KPN, who
became climate neutral this year and has been exclusively using green energy generated in the Netherlands since 2011.
Visitors can tune into radio channel Windlicht FM 105.3 FM to hear the stories behind the artwork.

The latest exciting works in progress from the worlds most imaginative designers.

For the Serpentine Pavilion 2016, Bjarke
Ingels and his team at BIG Architects has
attempted to design a structure that
embodies multiple aspects that are often
perceived as opposites: a structure that
is free-form yet rigorous; modular yet
sculptural; both transparent and opaque;
both solid box and blob.
They decided to work with one of the
most basic elements of architecture: the
brick wall. Rather than clay bricks or stone
blocks, however, the wall is erected from
extruded fibreglass frames stacked on top
of each other. The wall is then pulled apart
to form a cavity within it, to house the
events of the Pavilions programme. This
unzipping of the wall turns the line into a
surface, transforming the wall into a space.
A complex three-dimensional environment
is created that can be explored and
experienced in a variety of ways, inside
and out. At the top, the wall appears like a
straight line, while the bottom of it forms
a sheltered valley at the entrance of the
Pavilion and an undulating hillside towards
the park.
The unzipped wall creates a cave-like
canyon lit through the fibreglass frames
and the gaps between the shifted boxes, as
well as through the translucent resin of the
fiberglass. As a result, the shifting overlaps
as well as the movement and presence of
people outside create a lively play of light
and shadow on the cave walls within.
The materials include wooden floors and
extruded Fiberline profiles providing every
surface with a warm glow and linear texture
from the mesh of woven glass fibres to the
undulating lines of the grain of the wood.
This simple manipulation of the archetypal
space-defining garden wall creates a
presence in the park that changes as you
move around it and as you move through
it. The North-South elevation of the
Pavilion is a perfect rectangle. The East-
West elevation is an undulating sculptural
silhouette. Towards the East-West, the
Pavilion is completely opaque and material.
Towards the North-South, it is entirely
transparent and practically immaterial.
As a result, presence becomes absence,
orthogonal becomes curvilinear, structure
becomes gesture, and box becomes blob.

Natures diverse beauty has been an
inspiration for artists through the ages.
Opening this summer, Colour and Vision,
sponsored by LG OLED TV, will take a
journey through the eyes of nature at the
new Natural History Museum in London, UK.
The exhibition will also include Our Spectral
Vision - an immersive new light installation,
by British light and sculpture artist Liz West,
inspired by Isaac Newtons seven-fold colour
spectrum and blue morpho butterflies,
Morpho sp, in the Museums collection.
Rays of light from every colour of the
rainbow will beam through seven prisms
made from special colour filter glass,
creating an atmospheric illusion that will
stimulate your visual perception of colour.
Liz West explained: The iridescent
patterns and colourings present on the
birds, insects and animals in the Natural
History Museum collection have inspired
the amazing selection and arrangement of
colours in this artwork. The science behind
the natural processes of colour researched
here at the Museum has provided the
backbone for my work.
The exhibition will span from when animals
first started seeing images millions of
years ago through to todays visual culture
with colours pivotal role art, design, and
technology. Bold-hued plumage, metallic-
winged beetles and iridescent butterflies
will illustrate how natural pigments are
used for paints and dyes.
Dr Suzanne Williams, colour evolution
researcher at the Museum said: Our
research is helping to uncover exciting new
evidence demonstrating that colour and
pattern evolve over time, affecting the
survival of species. Pigments and structural
colour together create the enormous
diversity of iridescence and bold colours
that contribute to the incredible beauty of
our world, inspiring artists and scientists
Colour and Vision: Through the Eyes of
Nature is open from 15 July 6 November
2016 and will be complemented by a range
of evening events.

New York-based architectural lighting

designer and light artist Christine Sciullis
project ROIL, is a geometry based site-
specific light projection installation.
ROIL, an eight-channel video projection
installation onto nylon mesh which
measures 35ft high x 55ft long x 28ft wide,
was installed at Brooklyns Smack Mellon
gallery this past winter.
Circles of light expand and collapse through
Smack Mellons cavernous raw space in a
frenzy, which harkons back to the roiling
steam issued from its ten boilers to
power the surrounding paper factories of
industrialist Robert Gair.
ROIL was created by projecting circles that
fall away into 2,000 yards of hand pinned
translucent netting. Extending out from
eight video projectors mounted at various
angles, the cylinders are viewed off axis as
they are caught and mapped through the
fabrics threads to a height of 35ft, seeming
to be arbitrary squiggles.

The lighting design looked to enhance the

providing a base for the retail tenants to
connect themselves organically.
With a budget half that of similar projects,
the Electrolight design team worked in close
collaboration with the architects HDR Rice
Daubney to achieve the desired result.
This concept was achieved by minimising
a reliance on conventional downlighting,
and strategically selecting and locating
luminaires within architectural details to
illuminate form and enhance volume.
The success of this strategy is owing to a
collective vision, attention to detail and
meticulous co-ordination with the HDR Rice
Daubney architectural team throughout the
entire design process.
The architecture evolved into a vibrant
and colourful interior space encompassing
a diverse range of visual experiences. This

been designed starting with circles and

to the accompanying video, installed at the

more familiar elements, like the gesture of

Austrian lighting manufacturer XAL showed what technical lighting can
deliver today: rooms were staged according to respective user needs in a
smart, networked, miniaturised, and flexible way. The almost 800m2 XAL
stand was a striking, seven-metre high monolith of matt black Alucobond.
Some 428 circular openings served as a showcase and allowed glimpses into
the future of lighting. Oversized, almost surreal entrance doors made from
oak signalled openness and hospitality, and at the same timerecalled the
Austrian roots of the company.
We wanted to create a space in which innovations and their potential can
be felt. This calls for areas where you can interact with these innovations,
said Michael Engel, manager at XAL, about the design of the stand.

The ERCO booth centred around LED technology and its
breakthrough in architectural lighting. Adopting a linear
black and white aesthetic, it reflected the polarity between
technology and design. A floor graphic of an LED PCB made
up of binary code created a visual link between the sec-
tions. The latest generation of ERCO lighting solutions was
presented on display tables, while a replica mock-up room
gave visitors the chance to see the brilliance, precision and
efficiency of ERCO LED solutions for themselves. Outside of
the booth ERCO ran a tongue-in-cheek survey asking trade
visitors about their personal project preferences. More than

Luminale has become an internationally renowned event, supported and enabled by the Frankfurt urban
society. Based on an initiative by Messe Frankfurt, held at the same time as Light + Building, it involves
various spheres all using light as a medium. Here, we showcase just a handful of highlights from this year.

The Naxoshalle, Frankfurt's most famous testimony to industrial culture acted as the central venue for Luminale 2016. Around 20
installations, performances, interactive space light art works and light objects could be found in the hall. Other installations and activities
such as the first Guerrilla Lighting in Frankfurt started from the Naxoshalle. It was hosted by the Theater Willy Praml, which put its venue
and studio stage at the disposal of the international Luminale artists.

GRID is a large format audio-visual live performance
combining animated kinetic lights with live electronic music.
The music connects directly to light animations and triggers
spatial movements and animations of the light elements. A
work by visual artist Christopher Bauder and musician and
composer Robert Henke.

In the listed Chemag building Merlin Baum presented his kinetic light
interface, which reacts to the surrounding wind and the draft made by
visitors, thus creating an interactive field of light. The installations by
Niklas Rieners examined the interfaces between the elements: time,
light, space and sculpture. The thread wave machine develops a spatial
dimension from movement and light. The fan laser segments architectural


In the foyer of the main hall the future architectural lighting
of Frankfurt's main railway station was shown, exemplified by
the already implemented facade illumination. A collaboration
between lighting designer Christian Uitz of RAUMLABOR, the
DB Station & Service and iGuzzini illuminazione, using LED
technology, a sustainable, energy-efficient facade and ceiling
illumination was created with a static, monochrome light.

Considering natural science, our universe came into being 14 billion years
ago with the big bang; since then it has continued to expand. It is a place
in which new stars are constantly arising and elapsing via supernova.
The Star spectacle was staged by Munich light artist Sigi Buinger in
collaboration with Osram, on the Friedrich-Ebert-Anlage.


2015 was the 'Year of Light'; in response the Dutch Institute
of Lighting Design (iLo) announced the 'Year of Dark'. The
ultimate awareness of the effect of light is by the cast
of shadows; we need light. This show consisted of light
installations from Roos van Haaften, Maarten Warmerdam,
Lidy Six, Carla Monchen, I.M.B.T., Domenico Casillo, Anita
Doornhein, Marc Breed, Katinka Marac and Blauwe Uur,
as well as research presentations and a public program of
artist talks and wokshops.

This media light sculpture with its musical interventions transformed the
Alte Nikolaikirche at the Romer into a Luminale highlight. The sculpture
was a communal project by the Hochschule fur Gestaltung Offenbach. Set
and Costumes, Professor Rosalie and the Institut fur Material-design, and
Professor Dr Markus Holzbach realised the project together.

The roof terrace of the Chicago Meat Packers Riverside
restaurant was the widely viewable location for the light and
cloth installation Riverside Lounge of Light by Ali Heshmati,
Lars Mee-Olsohn, Rainer Wronka and Torsten zu Klampen.
Here a playful handling of various facets of 'light' could be
found: as an originally lit open flame, as a more technical
lighting of sail surfaces, but also as a video jockey's abstract
moving image projection.

In its interplay of signs and symbols, the building faade of the Romarket
branch of the Deutsche Bank was transformed in the apparent light of the
projection. Past bills became form-changing imagery. Realised by Tom
Groll, the detail, the moment and the process increased their relevance by
gradually becoming perceptible over time.


Inspiration for the Lichtplan project by Robin Uber, came
from the Bauhaus architectural style of the 1930s building.
This language of form is characterised by the structured,
modular approach of the construction. This can also be
found in the contemporary painting style - de Stijl, e.g. by
Piet Mondrian. By means of modern LED light technique both
are combined visually.

The European Central Bank particpated in Luminale with two buildings
- its main building in Frankfurt's Ostend and the Eurotower in the city
centre, where ECB Banking Supervision will be located. The theme of
the illuminations were the European symbols and the official motto of
the European Union 'united in diversity'. The starting point for both light
installations was the European anthem performed simulatenously, as a
symphony of lights, on both the Eurotower's west faade and the main
building's south faade. The latter projection was visible from a good
distance and incorporated the euro symbol.

musson+retallick collaborated with Applelec on the Colonies
light sculpture at Nizza Park, which sits adjacent to the river
Main in Frankfurt. Two colonies at different developmental
stages exist within sight of each other but their relationship
is intentionally unclear. Their identity is also ambiguous
and the viewer experiences them both from a distance and
at close range. The viewer is invited to move amongst the
lit elements leading to discussions about the nature of the

duo Detlef Hartung and Georg Trenz are known for their typographical
light projections which bring places, lighting, meanings and visitors into
dialogue. Here they created an immersive space that aims to remain in our
memory for a long time.


The ING-DiBa LEO building invited visitors to interact with
light and architecture and thereby become a part of a unique
light event. MAASS-Licht used an array of Griven Powershine
MK2 S RGBW fixtures to wall-wash the building with an
impressive wave of light. Provisionally installed at the base
of the building, the units created a uniform light distribution
capable of surprising onlookers with bright and lively colours.


Professor Ariel Auslender, in cooperation with DB Station & Service
and Zumtobel, created Witness of the Time for this year's Luminale.
Our everyday life is shaped and defined by the time although time itself
is something entirely abstract. It passes unassisted, suddenly it is already
dark, how time flies... Seldom do we feel the moment, are fully aware of
it, appreciate the finite resource time. "It is not too little time we have,
but it's too much time we do not use." - Seneca.
