TUBULAR BELLES Chocolatier Patrick Roger wanted a spec- tacular centrepiece for his boutique shop in the Brussels Place du Grand Sablon. The building is protected by the Cultural Heri- tage Authorities so the interior and façade could not be renovated. Therefore a central display along the narrow space was decided on and Roger contacted lighting designer Gilbert Moity for an eye catching lighting display.
Moity had the idea of creating a kind of ‘hanging forest’ floating over the cen- tral display. The narrowness of the venue directed the designer towards a system of long LED tubes, seemingly randomly ar- ranged, that are perceived as two-colour objects that dominate the space by follow- ing its lines. www.gilbertmoity.com
