The myth of the origins of Chile’s Chiloe archipelago was the inspiration for ‘Vilu’, an imposing pendant light “digitally handcrafted” from metal sheet by gt2P for DHPH.

 

 

 

“Vilu Lights has symbolic bounding edges based on origin curves. In this case inspired on the origin myth of the archipelago of Chiloe.” says gt2P. “In southern Chile you may find several myths that explain the origin of all around … only one is related to its dismembered geography. It came after the great battle between two strong and powerful forces: Cai-cai Vilu, the spirit of the waters and Tren-tren Vilu, the protective and wise spirit. While one raised the level of the water, the other raised the level of the land. They fought till finding the balance that shaped the archipelago.”

“Vilu Light Collection is part of the project The Space of our Objects: Why do objects? How are they involved in space? What do objects give us? Creating objects help us to create a minimum architecture. They participate in space, define it functionally and intensify situations. They allow us to transmit an idea, learn ways to make and test processes.”

“Vilu Lights suggest an action. The lighted space proposes a conversation between people and only those who participate in this action are embedded in the inner spatiality. Vilu Collection are light spaces that match traditional symbology and Digital Handcrafting. This is a collection of parameterized local myths to be brought to the world.”
