This chair by Kiki and Pom is made of electroluminescent wire that glows when turned on – FUN!
Yet another plush lighting design concept cant wait.
For your consideration, James Turrell and Dan Flavin. Surprised no one has posted these two just yet (not that I’ve noticed, anyway). Somewhere between Minimalism and Conceptual Art, both artists work closely with light and perception.
I love the sets and costumes from the original Tron released in 1982. The colors are absolutely amazing, and though the dialog is a little kitchy, it’s clear that the designers spent hours perfecting the visuals. If you haven’t seen this film, I highly recommend it. Plus its the perfect blend of light and textile.
This movie blew my mind in undergrad and although I had hesitations on whether I should post it here as inspiration, I think that everyone should be introduced to this type of budget film making at one point or another. One could use this example of true DIY art direction and attention to detail to be resourceful with materials and still make a convincing and well crafted piece. Not to mention its a New Wave Sci-Fi about orgasms, aliens and heroin, fashion, clubbing and THE SCENE
dreamy visuals and synthy soundtrack….
