For the fifth year celebrating Salone del Mobile, the world’s largest design fair in Milan, COS has partnered with Sou Fujimoto Architects to create a unique installation and multisensory experience, Forest of Light. Inspired by nature and the experience of a forest at twilight, the COS x Sou Fujimoto installation presents light and sound in a new architectural context.
Taking inspiration from the COS Spring Summer 2016 collection, ‘Forest of Light’ explores ideas of interaction and perspective; the darkened space is illuminated by towering cones of light that are designed to respond to visitors’ movements. Specially-composed sounds, subtle fog and mirrored walls create an immersive, infinite landscape where the conical spotlights become abstracted trees in a shifting forest of light.
With fog and specially-composed sounds creating an immersive environment, mirrored walls imagine an infinite landscape where the conical spotlights become abstracted trees, joining together to form a shifting forest of light.
“People meander through this forest, as if lured by the charm of the light. Light and people interact with one another, its existence defining the transition of the other,” said Sou Fujimoto.
Discover the installation in Milan, taking place from April 12th to 17th.
