The LivingSculpture 3D module system

Art Press Release from Australia. Published by Rebecca Gabrielle Cannon on Saturday 28 July 2012.

Shimmering eclectic waves, the magic of visual oceans high up a ceiling, endless skies of light flickering and changing in time, impressions created by the new “LivingSculpure 3D module system“ by Christopher Bauder.

The award winning and Berlin based designer has teamed up with PHILIPS to design a revolutionary modular system of light installation by using OLED’s (Organic Light Emitting Diodes), a break through in lighting that fascinate by their endless possibilities to create new forms of light as they are emitting light in form of super flat (1,8mm) panels when electricity is applied.

The new technology has made possible what Christopher Bauder’s dream in design has always been: using technology and transferring bits and bytes into real spaces of offices, museums, bars, and airports and by re-interpreting this light technology in his art and design. For designers like Bauder and customers the possibilities for using these OLED panels seem endless due to their technical specifications: there is no necessity for framing the waver-thin mirror panels to supply them with electricity. Little metal clips attached to the panels supply electricity and due to their panel-like elegant surface they emit a warm area-lighting.

The LivingSculpture 3D module system consists of a base plate and connecting rods with the fine thin OLEDs at their ends. A plug-and-play system controlled through an iPad allows for the customer to create completely new magic light arrangements remotely and dive into an ocean of light. Bauder has chosen a wavy arrangement in the design of his example installation, which reflects the flexibility and delicate impression of OLEDs. Fascination by an outstanding combination of three-dimensionality and elegance.
