During Milan Design Week 2017, Barbara Balestreri created responsive light-installations for ELLE DECOR ITALY exhibition. Visitors were invited to trigger sensors and projections activating emotional and dynamic lighting designs. Guests could sit on a chair to switch on a kaleidoscopic effect of reflections. Glowing globes pulsated creating a raindrop effect over a rippling water surface projected on the floor. Philippe Starck’s hat lamps hanging upside-down from the ceiling lit-up when people steps on a particular spot. A chandelier emanating a warm, bespoke light became a sculpture when indirectly illuminated. “With this installation in collaboration with FLOS we aimed to highlight both the decorative and technical aspects of lighting design which are often presented separately even though they are inseparable aspects of the project” Says Barbara Balestreri.
