Brightening up another pedestrian tunnel

Nullohm has participated in the the make-over and the lighting design of a pedestrian tunnel  at Lindberg in Oslo. The designs of the light installation and wallpaintings are based on interviews with local stakeholders and participatory workshops. Several tests of various luminaries were carried out together with local children and adults, who were invited to try-out and play with the lighting in the tunnel.

Vestbys nye ungdomskole med en Dobpler lysvegg i inngangsportalen

Ungdommen i vestby vil starte det nye skoleåret i en splitter ny skolebygning tegnet av arkitektene Kristiansen & Bernhardt.

Trapper og haller er utsmyket av kunstneren Tine Aamodt og Nullohm har hatt gleden av å levere en 2,4 x 2 meter Dobpler ledvegg som byr de besøkende velkommen i hovedingangen. Stål og glassarbeide for den massive glassveggen er levert av CC Glass Tønsberg. Leder for kunstkomiteen har vært Helena Kive.

 

Newly built lower secondary school in Vestby, Norway with a Dobpler Ledwall entrance

The kids at the lower secondary school in Vestby, Norway will start this years in a brand new building by architects Kristiansen & Bernhardt
Stairs and halls are decorated by artist Tine Aamodt and Nullohm had the privilege to create a 2,4 x 2 meters Dobpler Interactive LED Wall to greet the users in the main entrance.
Steel framing and the one piece glasswork for the light installation was done by the craftsmen at CC Glass Tønsberg.
Leader of the art committee has been Helena Kive.11924288_971963639509679_5534036973277624199_n

Introducing our new system, the Videre-Lux.

 

The Mnemosyne, Dobpler and Resonance is all sensor based on the principle of distributed sensors for direct interaction with humans . During the last years we saw the need for a Led light art system that is directly feed with computer generated graphics, video sources or central micro-controllers for coding light effects.

Our task of creating interactive LED facade modular panels for architecture that are wheater resilient, thin and lightweight has also lead to the development of genuine production technique that we claim has solved many of the issues and concerns related to lifetime expectancy, maintenance regimes and costs related to using LEDs in the harsh outdoor environment. This technology now opens for full creative freedom in shapes, colors and translucent materials for custom designed integration in architecture. And it is fully compatible in design with our Mnemosyne system for combination possibilities.

Its is not a high resolution system with its pixel CC of 50 mm, but its potential when it comes to light output is phenomenal.

The premiere of this system in full scale was the luxurious Baselworld fair in Switzerland. Created in cooperation with the brand architects The Brandstorm for the MGI Luxury Groups brand Movado. Custom made for a modern architecture with diagonal facades covered in delicate black fabrics that contrasted the light and materials. The weave patterns of fabrics togheter with the grid of pure white LEDs created vibrant textures togheter with the motion-graphics art provided by Nullohm.

Video of performances on Passerelle Simone-de-Beauvoir, Nuit Blanche

Nullohm created for the french multidisciplinary group OIDEM interactive red LED light fixtures using our “Resonance system” a sensor based light interaction with a 433 MHz radio network. A system that is suitable for pedestrian streets or other public spaces if designed for permanent instalation.

The location are the Passerelle Simone-de-Beauvoir in front of Paris National Library. The Installation was used as a art scene for a number of artistic events, the innovative Future en Seine festival and culminated in the Nuit Blanche festival the 6 oct 2012.

Dobpler Interactive LED system exhibition in Košice, Slovakia. 19-20— January

Nullohm are participating in European City of Culture 2013 with a three meter Dobpler wall, a sircuit identical to the installation we did in cooperation with Snøhetta in Norway in 2008.

Dobpler is a soft and extremely energy efficient «Light on Demand System» in the form of modular Led panels with a simple interaction that creates joy, visibility and attention. The system may be used as walls, floors, roofs.

Since 2008 we have developed a new generation system called «Mnemosyne», offering more interactive possibilities that can be tailor made for different projects.

This exhibition is a presentation of a classic, pioneering work in interactive/narrative LED lighting designs and art for permanent use within architecture.

Pedestrian/bicycle passage in Sandvika, Norway

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.

Sonomorph – the first run in the gallery, video

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..
