Bright: Architectural Illumination and Light Installations

Производитель: "Die Gestalten Verlag"

The use of light and illumination in architecture and design is currently evolving and making an increasingly significant impact on various creative disciplines. Today, architects use light installations to create a different nighttime identity for their buildings that allow for additional functions and presentations. Light is also important for interior designers, who use it to give the impression of a room where there isn`t one or make a space seem bigger or smaller. Others use light to conjure works of art, forms and images out of nothing or to give entire city centres a whole new look. In short, light is a magical medium for creative experimentation that designers are using to produce a broad spectrum of exciting work. Bright presents a rich selection of these innovative projects that are setting trends in the creative use of light. The included work has been implemented in both a commercial and cultural context around the world. Each designer or design company is portrayed in an eight-page spread featuring both stunning photography and detailed text information. Bright is an up-to-date reference tool for professionals working in the fields of lighting design, architecture and art. The book reflects the role of illumination as a multifaceted and interactive design element. In doing so, Bright sheds new light on the future of architecture and design.
