LIGHT4 & JULIA BORNEFELD - WATER LIGHT FESTIVAL

(PDF)


The installation FONTANA ROSSA was created on the occasion of the 2nd Water Light Festival in Brixen South Tyrol / Italy and adorns the fountain on the square in front of the Hotel Elephant. Fifty red hydraulic hoses, three to five meters long, curved in the form of fountains of different heights, spring from the seven-cornered centre of the multi-level fountain. From one third of the red hoses, water flows steadily into the deeper wells of the well. The other hoses are provided with LEDs at the ends and immerse the water feature in the dark in light. Water is transparent and is usually associated with the colour blue. The hoses of the FONTANA ROSSA appear red in colour like veins of blood springing from within the well, giving the viewer an association of blood - body - life ... water.

Composed by five basic modules and by as many as twenty different colors, BRICK is the ideal solution for lighting large spaces without having to give up the decorative and estetic side: infinities, then, are the geometries that can be obtained by combining the various modules between them.

PLAYING WITH AQUA IN PAVIA!

CUSTOM STORY BY AQUA

(PICS)


The protagonist of our monthly appointment with customization and project development is Brian Rasmussen’s Aqua, for Façon de Venise. Fantasy has no boundaries in a sea of ocean blue and sky blue lights. Aqua is a maxi creation devised for a large space, aiming at verticality with 5 levels dropping down for over 3 meters to light an elegant lounge room. And finally, how to unite shapes? Through multiple spheres, running all the way from the designer's hand to the final result.


LIGHT4 CUSTOM STORY

(PICS)


At the base of all our projects is the idea that the product should be developed according to the personality of the place of destination or of the request. Listening and dialogue are the starting points for learning about and finding the solution in mutual harmony. Today a new journey begins through our "custom story": the projects that have led us to develop unique pieces for spaces full of personality.

Mistrass reveals itself in three completely new versions, each of them different: a composition with an imposing breadth, six-meter-long cascades of colour and finally a composition of spheres. Every request involving colour, size or critical technique is analysed and developed by the Light4 technical studio, to reconstruct the reality down to the slightest detail.


BLOOM honours Japanese cuisine

(PICS)


The petals and glow of Bloom harmonise perfectly with the modern environment of the Japanese restaurant Regina, of Bergamo. Like three large flowers, the hanging lamps are set as the visual centre of attention, giving continuity to the linear path of wall lights. The project was developed by "Luce In" of Bergamo.
