THE LIGHTING ELEMENTS HAVE BEEN MADE OUT OF FOLDED SHEETS OF THIN STEEL AND THEN POWDER COATED IN WHITE. WE USED THIS TECHNIQUE AS WE WERE INTERESTED IN THE INDUSTRIAL PROCESS AND WANTED TO MAXIMIZE THE STRUCTURAL QUALITIES OF FOLDED STEEL IN IT’S SIMPLICITY AND RIGIDNESS.


WE PLACED THE LED’S IN THEIR SOCKETS AT A CERTAIN ANGLE IN WHICH THE LIGHT RAYS WOULD FALL TO ENSURE THE OPTIMAL ILLUMINATION OF THE SPACE AND OBJECTS WITHOUT CREATING A GLARE FOR THE LIBRARY USER. THE CHOSEN ANGLE WAS ADAPTED IN EACH SEGMENT ACCORDING TO THE HORIZONTAL and vertical POSITION OF THE FIXTURES.


BECAUSE OF THE WAY EACH LIGHT SOURCE HAS BEEN PLACED THE SHADOWS IN THE LIBRARY HAVE A SPECTRAL CHARACTER AND GIVE THE SPACE AN UNIQUE LAYERED DEPTH WHILE AT THE SAME TIME CREATING A FEELING OF COMFORT WITHIN THE ROOM.
