Danzer Light is an interactive lamp designed by 3XN’s research and development department GXN. The geometry of the lamp consist of only four different components that by mathematical principles has been assembled into one geometry containing 180 components in total. The name refer to the mathematician Ludwig Danzer who developed the aperiodic tiling algorithm used in the installation.
For this project Esben designed a dynamic lighting setup, where the movement of a virtual swarm of agents activate the LEDs that are integrated in each component. The setup creates a dynamic effect where the swarm of light travels around inside the structure of the lamp. The conceptual interior was created as a prototype to the Dublin Opera interior, hence the swarms behaviors was affected by the characteristics of the sound and music in the space, this allowed the light installation to a a visual responsive dimension to the musical concert because the light would move in organic flow patterns in relation to the sounds in the concert hall.
The prototype was exhibited as part of 3XN’s Solo exhibition at DAC (Danish Architecture Center) in Copenhagen, Denmark.
