With her colourful ‘Neon wallpapers’ and her delicate luminous weavings the Danish textile designer Astrid Krogh has not only lighten up some rather dry environments such as the Danish Parliament or the headquarter of the Danish State Railway – many of her works are associated with the architecture of well-known international practices.

Astrid’s latest neon light installation is ‘Flora’, a decoration for the Nikolai Quarter in Kolding, Denmark, which was commissioned by the Commune of Kolding. The renovated quarter is a complex of schools and other social institutions and its new central place was designed by the Danish landscape architect Kristine Jensen.

In contrast to Astrids previous neon tapestries ‘Flora’ is less patterned but a very free composition of old floral ornaments.

One of her latest projects is a wall decoration for the NRGI headquarter in Århus, Denmark, designed by Schmidt Hammer Lassen. The tapestry ‘Lightfall’ she created for the elevator inside the atrium of the building is made of optical fibres, a material Astrid has been using for several years. By cutting some of the fibres the light conduction is interruted and the light rays out at certain spots.
