Biotope

For a 12m high chapel Ingo Maurer was asked to design an eye catching & sound absorbing light object. 

The structure of the 4m hight sculpture is made of a steel frame with 5 removable wooden sections.

The shape is built up with Styrodur & green dyed sponges. All works where accomplished in the in-house workshop. 

Inside the sculpture is a hidden sound system by Bang & Olufsen and a light control system that effects colorfull light changes.

On the surface are sitting innumerable insect replicas from the American artist Graham Owen.
