ames studio re-imagines the light house to reflect sweden's natural lighting

as part of the 2018 stockholm furniture and light fair, ames studio re-imagines ‘the light house’. based in the swedish captial’s kungsträdgården, the public installation is a 360 degree interactive space that intertwines light, media and reflection into a unique, playful yet informative experience.

throughout the 2018 stockholm design week, ‘the light house’ will showcase different scenarios in order to represent the unique light in sweden; from an energizing sunrise and sunset to the awe-inspiring aurora. it does so through four LED TV doors that act as interactive digital portals. these not only transport the visitors to a variety of locations, but also serve as information points that aim to spread awareness of the important role of light in our future cities.



in an effort to make the design installation truly public, ‘the light house’ is defined by its simple house structure. this form not only links as a metaphor to the early process of when ames studio was designing it, but also so that is works as an open invitation to all visitors. with elements of lighting and mirrors, the play of perspective makes the space even more welcoming and expansive to explore.
