Last Friday Barrisol launched a new lighting collection by Ross Lovegrove at the Biennale Interieur 2014 in Kortrijk, Belgium. The lighting collection explores a 3D adaptation of Barrisol’s stretch-foil material, which is used worldwide for ceilings and walls, providing solutions in both light and acoustics as well as aesthetics and technology.
The pavilion itself, where the lighting is presented, is a 7 m high, 12 m square room externally covered in Barrisol tiles of a reflective mirrored material. The honeycomb-shape and colour of the tiles belies the soft stretch material used. Inside, the room takes on a serene white, tactile form using material with acoustic dampening properties, carefully stretched to the interior framework of the honeycomb exterior.
The installation will be open for public until the 26th of October. Biennale Interieur 2014 in Kortrijk, Belgium. Hall 5, Stand 553.
