In celebration of this year’s Salone del Mobile, the world’s largest design fair in Milan, we have 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 installation presents light and sound in a new architectural context.
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.
Sou Fujimoto (藤本 壮介) is a Japanese architect. Born in Hokkaido in 1971, he graduated from the University of Tokyo in 1994, and established his own office, Sou Fujimoto Architects, in 2000. Noted for delicate light structures and permeable enclosures, Fujimoto designed several houses, and in 2013, was selected to design the temporary Serpentine Gallery pavilion in London.
