Can you imagine 49 two meters high crystal shaped lights? Well, what if they also moved in a complicated, ever-changing dance? A stunning piece of design, the Crystal Chandelier is a permanent kinetic light art installation of the Tsvetnoy Central Market, a shopping centre in Moscow. 

Can you imagine 49 two meters high crystal shaped lights? Well, what if they also moved in a complicated, ever-changing dance? A stunning piece of design, the Crystal Chandelier is a permanent kinetic light art installation of the Tsvetnoy Central Market, a shopping centre in Moscow.

Once again, European (German, in this case) lighting design proved itself to be one of the most refined and imaginative in the world, thanks to the ability of companies like White Void  to combine great ideas with efficiency and professional seriousness. White Void creates interactive installations and products for museums, exhibitions, trade fairs, festivals, events, concerts and clubs, operating at the interface of art, design and technology. They specialized in moving light, which is a vital but normally steady comfort, turning it into a synchronized spacial animation that is extremely eye-catching and pleasurable to admire.

Created in 2011, the installation is nothing but a giant, moving chandelier, creating light and colour animations. The 14 meter high and six meter deep sculpture constantly moves, creating different aerial patterns depending on the moment of the day…or night, when the Chandelier “hibernates”, keeping the lights on so that it is possible to see it from the outside, through the glass facade. The shape and colour variations offer the clients of Tsvetnoy Market  a unique shopping experience.  

White void, in the context of  the project Kinetic Lights, created the RGB Led Crystals for specific installations, like the Chandelier, for they are perfect for the task, not too heavy but solid material, with optimized reflection characteristics and no need for active or passive ventilation. They are singularly regulated in intensity and height, adjusted by a software; if combined and synchronized, the effect is amazing: the brightness of light serves both as illumination and artistic attraction. Definitely, something difficult to forget.
