Gumball 3000: In a cross-country race where Lamborghinis and Ferraris are a dime a dozen, our client wanted to drive a car that would make him and his wife stand out from the pack. He chose the DMC DeLorean as his weapon of choice and asked Digital Ambiance to trick it out with some next level lighting effects.
We developed our own custom waterproof addressable light bar to accent the lines and contours of the vehicle. They had to be robust enough to withstand the rigors of being mounted on the undercarriage of a car and being driven cross country, yet low profile and elegant.
We worked with our partners at Photonic Bliss to develop custom programming for these fixtures and gave the client control of the system with a custom iPhone app so he could control the lighting remotely. Equipped with a custom flux capacitor, this car looks stylish in any place and time.

CODA: Collaboration of Design + Art
The global online community that celebrates design projects featuring commissioned artworks.
[ 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.
