New York’s Brookfield Place has a new colorful decoration for ChristmasMonday 7 December 2015
The world-renowned architect and designer David Rockwell, together with Arts Brookfield, has created a lighting installation named “Luminaires”, that just opened to the public at Brookfield Place in New York City.
Visitors are immersed in a glowing canopy of 650 custom lanterns embedded with LEDs, each capable of changing color and intensity, a colorful project built on the season’s traditions of sharing, community, and connection.
Inspired by the concept of a wishing well, three glowing Wishing Stations will be positioned within the iconic Winter Garden’s palm trees, an idea was conceived by the LAB at Rockwell Group, the firm’s interactive technology studio.
Guests may send a “wish” to the lanterns above by placing their hands on the touch-sensitive stations, which pulse with color. Upon releasing their hands, color erupts in the canopy above, translating the wish into a mesmerizing display of colors that travel throughout the lanterns.
LEDs embedded in the lanterns create an all-day/night lighting experience and choreographed light shows are scheduled throughout the day and evening.
The free installation is now available to the public, and will run until January 10, 2016. If you want to know more information about the “Luminaires”, you can find out here.
