Two unique pieces of digital furniture for the Bloomberg Office in New York. The hybrid pieces combine light installations with information display. The illuminated legs are synchronised with the touch screen content so that people interacting with the surface transform the structure in real-time.. The ‘Scroll’ is a vertical surface of colourful data that appears to emerge from the very fabric of the building itself, through an array of illuminated rods changing colour with the screen content. The installations were commissioned by Bloomberg
The installations were commissioned by Bloomberg to greet visitors and allow them to tap into the world behind the stories made by the company and to refelct the identity of the brand. The ‘Hub’ is an interactive multi-touch information table. The illuminated legs are synchronized with the touch screen content so that people interacting with the surface transform the furniture in real-time. The ‘Scroll’ is a vertical surface of colorful data that appears to emerge from the very fabric of the building, through an array of illuminated rods changing color with the screen content.
The project was a collaboration between client, artist, architect and technology partner.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
