The geometry of the light sculpture is inspired by the design of the Bella Sky Hotel, that called for a unique collaboration of partners.
When the Bella Sky Hotel launches in Copenhagen May 16th guests are greeted in the foyer by the Bella Chandelier which is a light sculpture with more than 7000 LED lights, created by GXN, the R&D department of Danish architects 3XN. The new light sculpture reflects the architecture and design of the Bella Sky.
3XN writes in their press release that with the aim of bringing art and science together in one unique light and color experience, the multidisciplinary team of GXN has been on a journey exploring the realm between structure, technology and design. The journey has now come to an end and the light sculpture will be installed this week at the Bella Sky Hotel.
“GXNs constant strive for experimenting with the unknown can only be realized by the collective effort of many partners. Our multidisciplinary way of working with technology design and advanced structures proved invaluably important in this project, since the challenges that emerged during design and construction only where solvable once the knowledge from fields of architecture and engineering were combined”, explains Kasper Guldager Jørgensen, Head of GXN.
Team: 3XN and GXN - Concept Design and Project Management: Kim Herforth Nielsen, Jan Ammundsen, Kasper Guldager Jørgensen, Marie Hesseldahl Larsen, Henrik Leander Evers, Paul Mas and Antoine Ceunebroucke Bæk Group - Conceptual and Structural Engineering.
