kollision designs an interactive lighting installation for danish northside festival

northside festival wishes to be a green and sustainable cultural event, which was the starting point for kollision to create a spectacular and interactive installation at the festival — ‘the northside beacons’. the beacons consist of a wooden base with a bench and translucent tops containing individually controllable LED’s. the light sources are 3D controlled and connected to IR-sensors inside a collection station.

when not activated by users, danish design office kollision‘s entire installation functioned as large-scale, glowing, wayfinding beacons for people trying to locate each other at the festival grounds. when users deposit a plate into the recycling station, they are rewarded with light pulses through sixteen large beacons, spanning the entire 160 meters of the festival grounds. kollision developed the concept together with northside and down the drain productions, who also built the towers.
