Located between Bærum Kulturhus and the cinema there is a narrow passage for pedestrians and bicycles. Lighting designer Linda Knoph Vigsnæs from Lystoff have been responsible for the lighting plan, and suggested a interactive light wall to brighten up the dark passage and create responsive visibility in an effort to ease the potential conflicts between cyclists and pedestrians.
Bærum Culture House is a respected stage for dance and theater, designed by Snøhetta Architects, so a Mnemosyne led wall seems like the perfect match with it´s theme of humans in motion.
To cover a larger stretch of the passage and mirror the culture-house´s vertical architecture Nullohm created the interactive modules in increasing sizes divided apart.
Nullohm has togheter with he craftsmen of Prototyper AS, Bolt, Apart and Hydrolift created for the artists Fredrik & Martin Raddum an impressive large piece of lighting furniture. Situated in the park and of a neighborhood with the name Haugenstua, -that if translated would be something like ” the living-room on the hill”. The measures are impressive nine meters high and four wide. And we had to used norways largest mobile crane to mount it…
Finally, after more than a year of tedious planning we are ready for finalization of the project: Siegessäule on Großer Stern, Berlin.
Our client, ADB Architects has on behalf of Senatsverwaltung für Stadtentwicklung been in charge for the total rehabilitation of this great monument in the heart of Berlin. Viktoria has even gotten her self a new dress in real gold leaf, and is probably more proud than ever.
Nullohm has just finished a project for the architects at Bifokal – A sound activated interactive wall!
It consists of 70 modules that reacts with movement and light when it hears sound, it gets more vivid the louder sound. The modules consists of a special made circuitboard, programmed with the Arduino programming environment. A microphone is sensing the sound in the room, and triggers events in form of light and movement. All the modules are autonomus.
It was composed a special piece of music for the wall by Ali Parandian.
The film was shot the night before the exhibition opening, with an iPhone, so the quality isnt the best..
Cleaning a piece of sensor based interactive architecture is in fact quite more fun than cleaning a non interactive piece of architecture, its so easy to see what area you have just washed. – see for your self at the video.
Short and intense production, all parts sourced and shipped on the edge of the deadline. Our helpful partners at Topro delivered the finished PCBs just in time for assembly, and everything works flawless. Next is travel and building at Louisiana.
