Design Concept and Approach


Large area of acrylics is adopted to form many small and luminous acrylic cubes which creates a luminous wall with architecture structure quality through artistic combination. The tidy and well-proportioned combination presents a slim and graceful effect. Simple lines, well-proportioned combination, fluent and magnificent sense of space, all these fully shows the nobility of modern life.

B. Curtain Wall of Light and Shadow

Acrylics itself is a kind of material which can luminous evenly. Together with LED light and combination of light, shadow and structure, we create a curtain wall of light and shadow.  Then make the luminous wall a complete light cube which brings the application of light into full play. The floating luminous box forms a visual focus seen from afar which is both clear and natural.   

Design Description

We make 1:1 acrylic sample to study the effect of combination between acrylic and LED light as well as how to combine the acrylics into a stable acrylic wall. In this case, the designer uses small acrylic cubes to form a quality wall through different ways of combination and highlights the grains and quality of wall through designing a curtain wall of light and shadow. This not only shows the overall light cube but also present the light and structure through an artistic way.
