american studio INABA has completed ‘skylight’, a permanent installation for KORO public art norway. the 6.6m x 11.5m long structure hangs from the foyer of the new concert hall in stavanger. it is visible from the adjacent public plaza, and surrounding neighborhood and harbor, serving as a light beacon for the complex. responding to the region’s extreme atmospheric conditions, ‘skylight’ emits a range of pure color light patterns that contrast and complement the blended luminous tones of the dawn and twilight nordic sky.

 

conceived of as an inverted chandelier, the light’s fixtures are mounted to face inward and illuminate the structure’s interior surface. its programmable LED system is animated to change in brightness and hue, and produce distinct patterns during arrival, theater calls, intermission, departure, and after hours. based on a simple cylinder, the areas along the surface of the cylinder were removed to create views from the five-story high foyer to the city. the form was refined so that when the 6.5 tonne work is suspended from its two supporting pin connections, its distributed weight causes the structure to rest at an inclined angle and align with the sun’s angle of incidence during key moments over the course of the year.
