LED Butterflies

 In 2012 Ingo Maurer & team created a giant Biotop Wall with natural sponges for a private house.

I was in charge of the technical development and the on-site-installation in St. Moritz, Switzerland.

Prior to the final mounting  we could expose the object at the design week in Milan. Therefore I developed luminous butterflies that illuminated the wall with green and white LEDs sitting underneath their wings.  A dmx-based light control system effects a slight movement of brightness along the green wall. The butterflies where created in collaboration with an artist from Los Angeles who builds intricate life-size insect replicas.
