That’s right mophos, I’m bringing it back. Â PSYCH!
So, I think I had a dream about this the other night, but it might have been from the package of ridiculance I had before I went to sleep. Â This is awesome — Jeff Dah-Yue Shi takes the idea of the ol’ Q-Bert pattern and turns it into walls in a room. Â Can you say RHOMBUSES?!
Here’s the man himself talking about the installation — check it out!
That light there in the last image is amazing, check it out. Â It’s magnetic, and can be placed anywhere in the room:
Jeff’s design was for the Taiwan Design Center, which is a pretty cool concept, check out the website. Â It’s promoting design and designers from Taiwan.
The way these bamboo LED walls are made is pretty interesting too. Â From the article at MyModernMet:
To create these beautiful lights, Dah-Yue Shi placed LEDs behind the bases of each rhombus. On top of the LEDs is a layer of tempered glass with a thin application of bamboo veneer. This allows for the lights to shine through while also blending into the patterns around it. Because of both the patterns and shifts in color, a three dimensional optical illusion is created. This type of lighting system is designed to be used anywhere like clubs, offices, and even homes.
Really cool! Â Great work, Jeff!
Here’s the lights off, at 60%, and full:
