Lucèste - 谷尻誠 & Toshiba

Lucèste (Luce: Light + Celèste: Heavenly)
is a collaborative spatial-lighting installation between Makoto Tanijiri and Toshiba currently installed at Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2010, Italy.

The design created a soft, edgeless realm where space and distance seems to disappear. At once it may feel strangely claustrophobic, at once it appears deceivingly boundless.

Another main player here is LED lighting technologies from Toshiba. Located at the (no, not ceiling) top of the space is an elliptical hole through which LED light shines in. And colour changes smoothly over time, giving a variety of conditions to the space resembling the inside of a womb, egg, cocoon.. stomach?

You as a new baby who've just come to the world with nothing at all, gaze out to the first ever beam of light and the unbelievably colourful world.
