In the spirit of the holiday season, architecture and design studio Brut Deluxe, led by Ben Busche, developed these festive light installations along Kurfrstendamm, a famous avenue in Berlin. The project consists of three parts located at different intersections, and each piece adds a little sparkle to the neighborhood.
First, a huge light dome spanning almost 25 feet in Joachimstaler Platz magically floats overhead. Second, five 3D cubes covered with abstract patterns illuminate a street median in a dazzling display. Finally, glowing rows of intertwining light strands create an artificial shrubbery landscape.
The intention of the project was to create emotional, memorable sensations of Christmas when visitors place themselves amongst the lights. The firm says, “The realized landscapes of light are inspired by images and situations recalled from our memory that we associate with Christmas and abstractly convert to light.”
