It looks like a room where daylight is falling on the walls, but it is not!
Norwegian designer Daniel Rybakken’s intention was with this project to take elements of his work and theories concerning daylight and incorporate them directly into architecture. The installation is located in the entrance of an office building in Stockholm. As both the entrance and staircase have no natural light, it was important for him, to replicate the positive sensation of sunlight. The installation consists of over 6000 LEDs.
” When you have daylight in a room you get information of something outside. This creates a feeling of an expanded perceived space. A sensation of freedom” a phrase by Daniel Rybakken.
His work seems and is so quiet, because at first sight everything looks normal and only after a second look you see the optical illusion. LOVE IT! His earlier work has also a wonderful name ” subconscious effect of daylight”. For sure his idea is going to be useful for underground stations, cellar apartments and every other dark room and especially for the grey Berlin times which starts now.
