Studio Dennis Parren from Eindhoven, the Netherlands, have developed a multidisciplinary design approach that focuses on using natural and artificial light as a design material. For the Lowlands Festival, the Studio has designed “Lift”, a continuously changing light sculpture.
Lowlands is one of the biggest music festivals in the Netherlands with over ten stages and 200 artists offering a feast of musical entertainment. The event takes place near Biddinghuizen in the Flevoland region. The designers were inspired by the festival’s “Kiss Another Sky” theme and built a tower of light with a height of 18 metres. It was placed right in the middle of the festival area to create a central meeting point that would be visible from all over the site. The tower was made up of a scaffold, 80 triangular banners and 250 metres of steel cable.
