One of the most interesting installation during Milan Design Week 2016 has been ‘Forest of Light’, designed by the Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto.
A light installation commissioned by fashion brand COS to experiment with lights and shadows.
‘The forest is not static, says Fujimoto, light and people interact with one another. This interaction connects fashion, space and forest as a form of architecture’.
Spotlights are used to create areas of overlapping light and shadows. Images fade on and off in response to movement.
Specially-composed sounds, fog and mirrored walls were also added to create the illusion of an infinite and ethereal landscape, with the spotlights appearing as towering trees.
