Lindsey Adelman and “The Nature of Motion” : a quivering tree-shaped light installation for Nike

Posted on

During the exhibition “The Nature of Motion” at Salone 2016 in Milan, the New York designer Lindsey Adelman collaborated with Nike to build an outstanding quiver tree-shaped light installation. Two lamps were conceived as main character of the show: a single hanging lamp and a more articulated tree-shaped chandelier of branching lights.

To make Adelman’s contribution stand out was her own interpretation of the natural movement, perceived with a philosophic and poetic attitude.

Focusing on the centrality of the subtle vibrations that allow plants to grow, transform and evolve, the designer managed to create a light installation of brilliant branches that swing sinuously. Her secret lies on the range of materials she chose: simple and light as brass and nickel, nonetheless the presence of sensors at the very top of every lamp.

The result? A bright recall to the stages of natural life.
