Lighting, Furniture & Product Design
Te Ara | Whiti – The Lightpath
Monk Mackenzie Architects and LandLAB created a vivid and dynamic cycleway by installing 300 programmable LED lights/lightboxes using SatinGlas, which create interactive displays when people walk or cycle along Auckland’s hot pink path.
The Three Baskets of Knowledge
PRODUCTS: Palsun Polycarbonate Sheet and PETG
There is a Maori creation myth in which the gods gave to humans three baskets containing the knowledge they needed to live on Earth. They hold the knowledge of the natural world (bamboo basket), spiritual world (polycarbonate basket) and our rational world (aluminium basket). The knowledge needs to be in balance for us to live harmoniously on Earth, where David Trubridge has recreated these basked for one of the Milan Design Weeks.
The Vitruvian Tunnel
PRODUCTS: Suntuf Twinwall Polycarbonate Sheets
This structure designed by Matt Liggins extends Leonardo da Vinci’s iconic Vitruvian Man diagram into a 3D form. The use of Twinwall Polycarbonate sheets created the ideal light and effect for the Bright Nights Festival in Auckland.
Designed by Timothy Sang, this was one fun sculpture not to be missed!
