Magical Interactive Garden Made of 1,200 LED Lightbulbs

Portugal-based architecture and design studio LIKEarchitects designed a spectacular garden of lights for IKEA at the Centro Cultural de Belm in Lisbon. Using 1,200 LEDARE lightbulbs affixed to 1,200 HEMMA floor lamp bases, the installation titled LEDscape presents an interactive playground for visitors to walk through an illuminated maze.

Led by co-founding architects Diogo Aguiar and Teresa Otto, the studio designed this temporary labyrinth of light to exemplify the beautiful eminence of LED technology and its powerful abilities as a sustainable product. The piece comes alive at night when it is capable of pulsing at different rhythms. The installation includes a pathway for audiences to enter the wall of lamps, each bulb sitting at a varied height, and experience the magical quality of its creatively radiant composition.
