designboom has received french-canadian design firm atomic3‘s most recent work, ‘éclats de verre’ developed for luminothérapie 2012.
the human-scale colored panel maze has been displayed in the heart of montreal, quebec, canada,
resembling a massive stained-glass window,
deconstructed to span the length of a public gathering space.  the ‘labyrinthe chromatique’ is a rainbow urban sculpture comprised of several large,
clear panels situated in a manner which interacts with both natural and artificial light. the rectangular pieces either enhance the surrounding space
with vibrantly-shaded shadows cast on the ground and passers by or made bright with man-made illumination in the night.
