100 year of Bauhaus

bauhaus100-yourpointofview.png

We are happy to announce that our lighting installation, Your Point of View, is part of the 100 year birthday celebration of Bauhaus.

The light installation "Your Point of View" will be presented at the festival center at Ernst-Reuter Platz exclusively for bauhaus week berlin.

Sometimes a change of perspective is enough to judge something fundamentally different. The Bauhaus movement raised many fundamental questions and broke with this everyday patterns of which we still feel their effects today.

Those who walk around this installation recognizes immediately the importance of a viewpoint and how it influences their judgement. For Studio De Schutter it was clear that they wanted to go beyond just mere aesthetics for this installation: "Focusing on the visitor experience, on perception and how this causes inevitably some kind of reaction, inspired us for this installation.”

“Your Point of View” is based on the concept of Gestalt psychology as it sees perception as a step by step layered process and toys with this very principle. With the change of perspective, you gain new knowledge. What appears here as a perfectly arranged concentric circle, triangle or square, promptly dissolves into a pattern of individual LED lines, eventually blurring into a pool of light. Through this interaction, the installation becomes dynamic and creates a dialogue with the observer.

Here for more information about the events and activities of the Bauhaus week in Berlin.

Ambassador for Women in Lighting - Germany

“When we talk about women in design, we should not turn it into a minority issue. We need to honour our heroines because unless they are visible, we will not encourage the next generation of female designers.” Ilse Crawford

Women in Lighting is an inspirational digital platform that profiles women working in the field of lighting design. It aims to promote their passion and achievements, narrate their career path and goals, celebrate their work and therefore help elevate their profile in the lighting community.

There is a need to increase the profile of successful women working in lighting to help encourage, support and inspire the next generation. There is no doubt that women currently have a lower professional profile despite making up approximately 50% of the lighting design profession. Lets change this.

The project is supported by individual female lighting designers in 50+ different countries. The Women in Lighting ambassadors are a point of contact in each location for other women seeking to find out more about the project. The project also includes those working in related lighting fields such as education, journalism and manufacturing.

Women in Lighting is not about gender inequality but about inclusivity and how this is beneficial to the profession as a whole.

A Light Collective project supported by Forma Lighting and Archifos
