EPHEMERAL LIGHTING INSTALLATION „KAAMOS AURINKO“ – the sun of the polar night
Being part of the design team together with Frank Dittmann/CH and Katharina Wyss/CH, ALLES oder Licht is very proud our project is nominated for German Lighting Design Award since we have already been awarded a (d)arc award in London end of 2019.
The arctic summer sun is hibernating in the ICEHOTEL, north of the polar circle in Swedish Lapland. It is in this icy nest that it found shelter during dark winter months. The anteroom is welcoming the visitor illustrating winter’s darkness in ephemeral colours of polar twilight. By passing a threshold, guests will enter the temple of the midnight sun, where warm light hues fill the bedroom’s dome. Within its pure materiality of light and snow Kaamos Aurinko is juxtaposing the two extreme seasons of the north. The visitor can experience at once the polar winter night and the summer’s warm midnight sun creating an ephemeral interplay of colours embedded into a seamless space of ice and snow.
