Helsinki World Design Capital 2012 Kruunuvuori Light Art piece

The Lighting Design Collective S.L. created a permanent art installation titled ‘Khruunuvuori Light Art piece‘ in Helsinki in 2012. They transformed a giant oil silo and programmed LEDs to flicker in arrangements that reflect local wind and light patterns.

Architectural lighting design firm LDC (Lighting Design Collective S.L.) has been awarded a prize to realize a permanent urban light art piece in Helsinki, Finland – an official project for Helsinki World Design Capital 2012.
The art piece will convert a disused oil silo into a wondrous light display and a civic space. Public will gain access to the vast interior of the 35m diameter 16 meter tall steel silo which will be dark red inside. Sunlight will fill the space with dappled shadows creating a spectacular daytime space.At night 1280 white LED´s flicker and sway on the surface of the silo controlled by a bespoke software mimicking swarms of birds in flight – a reference to silo´s seaside location. The prevailing winds, well known to those living in Helsinki, are used to trigger different light patterns in real time.‘The enduring fascination of the complex movement of light and the amazing location by the sea will make this a captivating experience for the visitors and the residents of Helsinki’ Tapio Rosenius the Director of LDC say.
