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.
