Concept

In the "ewoLAB" series the Bolzano-based, international manufacturer of high quality lighting systems launches projects in association with artists, designers and architects and explores light as a resource at a variety of levels. At Light+Building 2010 ewo will be unveiling a concept light based on the "Alphabet City Lights" developed by JDS Architects (Copenhagen, Brussels, Oslo).

JDS, the internationally renowned architects' office, came up with the idea for "Alphabet City Lights". The aim of the development was to design a lighting system which responded in both form and lighting technology to the demands of the project. The post is made from a simple, round high-grade steel section, designed to emit light from a large number of apertures. The light represents a new, flexible principle which enables the designer to meet specific wishes and to respond to the surroundings.
