Bouquets d'abat-jours

Bouquets d'abat-jours - Bouquets from lampcovers (TILT)
GLOW - International Forum of Light in Art and Architecture
Eindhoven 2012 - 7th Edition - 'Façades & Faces: Portraits of the City'
From November, 10th to 17th 2012, the city center of Eindhoven turns again into a forum of interventions, installations, performances and events based on the phenomena of artificial light.
Location: Wilhelminaplein
About the project:

TILT is a French collective focusing on the interplay of light, design and architecture. It realizes both temporary and permanent projects, always with the intention of making the audience look differently at the public space. The designs of TILT often are inspired by nature. Two years ago the collective presented luminous plants and trees on the 18 Septemberplein. This year the Wilhelminaplein is the setting for Bouquets d'abat-jours - bouquets of lampshades.

These colorful bouquets are not made from flowers but from traditional lampshades. Although they are blown up to enormous proportions they keep reminding of the domesticity of the living room. The lamps kindly bend over the audience making the Wilheminaplein a pleasant place to stay. With their ever changing colors, they provide the square also a joyful and festive look. At the foot of the lamps people have the opportunity to take a break or to socialize.
