Lucigami was created for a private event in Santiago de Chile, where te client requested a captivating space and a different lighting atmosphere for the garden. The concept became a piece of origami made of light that also moves through water. Its folds and semi-translucent body form a star-shaped container that carries its own light.
It was an ephemeral intervention where the budget was very limited, so it forced us from the beginning to find the most simple and ingenious solutions that will not compromised the sensitivity of the result. The client was not part of this creative process.
In this case, artist and designer were the same. Designing with Light is in each project a new challenge. Lucigami was a mixture between minimalism, simplicity and color.
This proposal is based on creating a playful space that not only tries to use light as a medium to create effects, but as part of a main viewing experience when people gather around it and feel welcomed into its space.

[ 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.
