Zumtobel presented during Milan Design Week the “EL” Masterpiece, jointly developed with Daniel Libeskind and edited by Sawaya & Moroni.
The première provided impressive evidence of the interaction between creativity, artistic intention, sophisticated design and technical lighting expertise, brought to perfection in the creation of this work of art.
Visitors at the exclusive event were excited about “EL” and the concept behind this Masterpiece: the multicoloured light of eL mimics and reproduces the cosmic light that fills the universe.
The Masterpiece is 2.70 m tall and cannot fail to impress with its special-steel surfaces polished to a mirror finish and fitted with 1,680 LED modules. A micro-controller has been built into each module. This is the innovative feature that makes it possible to meet the exacting and complex demands of controlling each LED individually. This highly complex technology is completely invisible to the beholder.
“EL” is the fourth Masterpiece Zumtobel has developed and produced as part of its partnerships, sometimes extending over several years, with artists working in a wide range of disciplines. Each Masterpiece is both a fascinating luminaire and a beautiful work of art.
