Basel – The three winners of the Designers of the Future award for 2012 chosen by W Hotels presented their new project From Spark to Finish at Design Miami/ Basel. Markus Kayser, Philippe Malouin and Tom Foulsham all explored themes of light.
Philippe Malouin presented Daylight, a solution to the shortage of natural light in the city. The series of LED lights are inspired by the Chinese geometric tangram puzzle and can be configured into different shapes and placed onto a wall, giving the impression of daylight shining through wooden window slats.
‘The temperature of the LED lights replicates the properties of daylight,’ Malouin tells LS:N Global. ‘I live in London and understand the lack of natural light, and the effect of this on people living in cities.’
