SILO 468

“Right now the light art scene has become utterly fascinated by a unique and highly innovative project in Finland. Silo 468 in Helsinki incorporates media design in light art as a part of architecture – the most modern form of light art and architectural lighting rolled into one. It is both an expression of today’s digital world and an indication of what lighting design is destined to become”
JOACHIM RITTER, EDITOR,  PROFESSIONAL LIGHTING DESIGN MAGAZINE

Lighting Design

We strive to achieve a sophisticated dialogue between light, space and time. We combine observation and study of natural light with cutting-edge insights into the latest technical possibilities of artificial lighting. Our work showcases how light can take on a multitude of roles in architecture, built environments and cities through innovative combinations of art and commerce.
Our work ranges from improving functionality of aiding orientation for increased usability to the experiential reinvention of visual space for revenue, and from the improved recall to strategic value of creating identity.

Digital Content

Media, screens and projections are the facades of this century. Our dedicated visual professionals and artists have the talent and flair to meet project needs from custom software development to generative visual code, from interactive light installations to brand-related content libraries and digital art collections.
We create time-based design interventions through skillful integration and sophisticated scenography that only truly multidisciplinary teams can achieve.

Light Art

Rooted in a fascination with natural light in movement and the infinite ways light relates to time, space and context, our design work extends into explorations of lighting as a form of art.
Our site-specific light art has been recognized by numerous international awards and included in public, private and museum collections.

“For the Education City Stadium facade lighting LDC has brought in artificial intelligence, haptic computing and interactive technologies harnessed to engage, communicate and to entertain. The building skin responds to the events inside in real-time adding layers of excitement and wonder to the visitor experience“

This varies from multidisciplinary dialogs with thought leaders to the prototyping of advanced solutions that embody our future visions in our customer projects.
