Comments Off on Nanoleaf’s Terra light wall paints Arctic landscapes with 1,200 color-changing LEDs

Nanoleaf – creators of the first modular smart light – recently unveiled a mesmerizing light wall at Alaska ‘s Anchorage Museum that evokes remote Arctic landscapes. “Terra” is made up of 1,200 Nanoleaf Aurora LED panels, which display beautiful imagery of sunsets and polar bears with over 16 million colors. Terra is Nanoleaf’s largest Aurora installation to date – it’s made from 1,200 triangular panels that can be connected together like LEGO bricks. Related: Add a splash of ‘living paint’ to your walls with Nanoleaf’s new LED light panels Thanks to improvements made by Nanoleaf, Aurora panels now offer voice control with Amazon Alexa, IFTTT integration, and an open API – which was used to create Terra’s moving arctic imagery. “The belief that lighting should be a more joyful experience was largely what inspired the Aurora,” said Nanoleaf CEO & Co-Founder Gimmy Chu. “Even though many people only see light as a function, we know that light is vital in creating the right ambiance. We wanted to give that experience back to the user, and hopefully inspire more creative ways of using light in a space – which is exactly what we’ve seen with ‘Terra’ at the Anchorage Museum. We see the Aurora as the ultimate tool for self-expression.” + Nanoleaf

Comments Off on Glowing LED "cloud" hovers over a social housing estate in Copenhagen

The main element of this site-specific installation is a distorted sphere made from polycarbonate sheets sewn together with stainless steel wire. The team developed the sewing technique from their previous projects, which featured only two sewing lines. This time, the sphere has three points where the sewing lines meet, allowing the team to experiment with more complex forms. Related: SHJWORKS’ Pop-Up Greenhouses Add a Splash of Summer to Cold Climates The organically-shaped sculpture was installed in a recreational space surrounded by a road, trees and the housing estate. A paved path leads through the area, where the structure creates a semi-public space. The concrete feet act as seating structures. + Shjworks Photos by Simon Hjermind Jensen

Comments Off on Light Walk: interactive LED-studded tunnel celebrates UNESCO’s International Year of Light

David Heaton and Sandra Linton Huezo designed the Light Walk, an interactive light installation that changes its appearance as users move through the space. Installed at the entrance of the Carl Zeiss eG in Germany, the Light Walk was created in celebration of the UNESCO 2015 International Year of Light Festival . Sensors captured user movement and then displayed as a ‘data ghost’ of light through a 3D light matrix to create an augmented reality where users can see their own data visualized. + David Heaton The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on INFOGRAPHIC: The greenest countries in the world and how they score on energy efficiency

In 2014, the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy graded the largest countries in the world on their energy efficiency. Some countries, like Germany, knocked their scores out of the park, while others (we’re looking at you, Spain) didn’t do so well. This infographic shows how the top countries rated and what they can do to improve energy efficiency in the future so they can raise their scorecard.

Armed domestic terrorist group in Oregon threaten critical wildlife habitat

Comments Off on Armed domestic terrorist group in Oregon threaten critical wildlife habitat

On Saturday, 2 January, a group of armed domestic terrorists took over the headquarters of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon to protest the treatment of two cattle ranchers convicted of arson. The group says they are “in it for the long haul,” despite the surrender of the ranchers in question. From an environmental perspective, the occupation of this federally-owned facility poses an immediate threat to the wildlife refuge, but also represents a larger movement to put state and local authorities in charge of public lands , which often results in logging, mining, and drilling. What happens this week in Oregon may set a precedent for how federal lands will be protected in the years to come.

Lighting giant Hulger recently returned to London’s Design Museum Tank with a gorgeous new light sculpture comprising 96 Plumen 002 light bulbs . The energy efficient designer bulbs are hung from copper Drop Cap pendants and arranged in a dynamic wave-like form that evokes the bulb’s curvaceous shape. The light sculpture is viewable from all angles through the tank’s four glazed openings, which along with the mirror placed on the floor, reflect the light and enhance the depth and brightness of the piece. The Plumen Tank is on display until February 2015. + Plumen The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader. Want to see your story on Inhabitat ? Send us a tip by following this link .
