Luxembourg and public space
The lighting project can be observed in three different areas of the Pavilion, the corridor, the barchessa (a Venetian rural building), and the installations. The first, 'fil blanc', represents Luxembourg’s public land and is bounded by a led strip path with RIBBON PLUS HIFLUX in DALI and emphasized by overlapping light cones. These accompany the visitor offering a negative connotation of the “private space”.
The works are displayed in this area, designed to appear as a non space-space. Each free-standing structure stands out thanks to punctual lighting offered by several IRIS-T spotlights with DALI protocol and customized optics and luminance. This particular choice reflects the rationale of the installation, whose purpose is to identify the space itself as the protagonist of a dialogue. Outlining and emphasizing the volumes, and consequently the concepts they convey, was only possible through customization. The third and last space, the pavilion itself, features a functional and diversified solution for the barchessa. The overall harmonious and calibrated effect is achieved through indirect lighting fixtures and different intensity, distributed at 10% on the sides and at 50% in the central part.
