Dlight - new light on personal space
Dlight is an interactive floating circle of light, moving rhythmically in the room. Memories of the hectics of the day, with faint and distinct echoes of sound fill the atmosphere. If you decide to enter the circle, you will be carried along by the flow of light and silence will fall.

Concept & Design
Dlight, new light on personal space was inspired on the crinoline, a garment from Victorian times. It is about experiencing one’s own space and silence; about intimacy, proximity, connection. You can connect by entering Dlight. This physical act has become an important part of the installation.
New light on personal space #2
New light on personal space consists of several interconnected circles. Sound and light transform the surroundings upon touch. This makes the installation pre-eminently suited for social interactions in public spaces, exhibitions and art and technology festivals.
