Winner in the Commercial Category | Inhabitat's Lighten Up! Lighting Design Competition
Rolluda Architects' installation, diTTo’s LED Acoustic Cloud Installation, was conceptualized and designed as a functional art installation for theater interiors or any areas that would require ambient lighting while contributing to acoustic absorption (e.g. restaurants). The faceted modules are made from flame-retardant treated abaca fiber, which because of its shape and composition has some properties that contribute to acoustic absorption. Collectively the modules create a freeform skin for acoustic sculptural art installations. The LED light modules on the installation's facets diffuse, wash, and reflect, creating a play of shades and shadows reminiscent of sunlight washing over clouds.
