Aura

Aura is the result of our exploratory approach. A result of play. It is a floating light sculpture comprising hundreds of lights on an exoskeleton surrounding an inflated white shape. Technically, Aura is inside-out. It’s an inverted light object – the structure and lights are on the outside and the diffusing surface on the inside.

It is a light source that exposes the inner workings of the technology behind it, allowing a peek into its intricate design. The exoskeleton covers the entire inflated shape, where each thin metal rod folds into a bow that holds one light. A swarm of over 500 lights gives the illusion that the inflated shape floats within this structure creating a warm reflective aura. Commissioned by the concert hall Mezz in Breda, Aura lives and floats 4 meters high, welcoming visitors in the new lobby.
