Illuminated installations inspired by nature were created for the BUGA festival in Germany by Loop.pH. The Lichstroeme structures depict nature’s micro-organisms at a grand scale. This ephemeral textile architecture is based on parametric design principles and promotes community engagement.
The structures were made by weaving strong composite glass fibers by hand. Ground level LED lights were added to make the structures appear to glow. These art forms allow for guests to walk around and through a nature-inspired element that would typically not be seen by the human eye. This is a great example for how we can use even the not-so-obvious elements of nature as inspiration and how utilizing unique materials and integrating lighting can have a strong impact on human emotion.
