Art Basel Miami Beach is the most important art exhibition in the United States. From 3 – 6 December 2009 the Austrian lighting manufacturer Zumtobel will present its innovative lighting solutions and selected masterpieces in this exclusive setting, e.g. the Starbrick Masterpiece, which was created in collaboration with world-renowned artist Olafur Eliasson, at the Art Collectors Lounge.
“The Starbrick is a fascinating experiment with light modulation and space. In recent years, Olafur Eliasson’s studio has performed a series of lighting experiments in collaboration with Zumtobel. During one of those experiments they decided to test different qualities and hues of LED light, placed within the individual modules, which eventually resulted in the current Starbrick. Its LEDs are organised to emit white light while also creating a luminous yellow and kaleidoscopic core in the shape of a cubeoctahedron. The LEDs are dimmable and have various light settings, offering both functional and ambient light.”
