The Barrisol – Lovegrove Pavilion and collection of new lighting, Biennale Interieur, Kortrijk 2014

Ross Lovegrove created an installation of large volume, 3D lights within a distinctive hexagontiled reflective pavilion, made from materials and technology by the innovative French company, Barrisol. Both the pavilion and lighting collection is currently on view at Biennale Interieur in Kortrijk, Belgium until the 26th of October.

The installation includes four large pieces that balance aesthetic form with subtle lighting function. Three pieces of the collection are forms of an ‘infinite loop’, they are highly volumetic, threedimensional lights, created from a perfect synergy between the stretch material, LED lighting and an aluminium framework. The final piece, Manta, forms a rhomboid, which allows for many different large modular arrangements. In this light, Barrisol foils with different intensities of stretch provide highly layered acoustic dampening and uniform lighting.
