Jean Laurin, Lighting Designer
Blue Hour Design
Lighting design for a sculpture made by Linda Covit.
We had to make a clever use of low energy luminaires while finding product with lots of output.The art piece is quite large and for that matter custom LED products were built in order to cover the sculpture but also to give that blue saturated color that we needed so much.
Working with Linda has been a nice journey. She had a good idea of where to go with the general concept. This gave me an opportunity to conceive very subtle ambiances through the night. It is a very peaceful space where people can just sit, walk inside the art piece or just relax around it.
