The artworks located on a 7 meters high ceiling area of a private residential house.The relationship between the artworks is the use of same rectangular principle.The size of lighting is 695cmx230cm, installed in the living room.It made of 3 different colors of glasses,3 different sizes of rectangular,and 54 pieces of spotlight with 3 types of beam angle.To create a focal point in the living area,the wall art presented in the 2 storey high wall, the use of steel-made frames stacked vertical and horizontal way,and paneled with different texture of metal which make this work appear shinny and attractive.


The lighting is a piece of art which combine the functional and visional aspect. The technical perspective of the design is to make the free flow and enhance the various reflection of light, and the transmission of light through the glasses.There is a big French window in the living area that facing Yangtze River with spectacular scenery of buildings. The design of lighting is like the reflection of the scene in the river. The different beam angles and colors of glasses with rectangular shapes, creating the image of sparkling building on the river. When you stop by the upper floor on the high ceiling area, you can see the scenery outside through the glasses of the lighting. To continue the design form of the artistic pendant, we created the rectangular frames of different proportions with different materials on the surface of the art decoration as the highlight on the high wall beside the staircase. The different materials will give a different visual attraction no matter you are going up or going down on the stair.
