5 LE RÊVE, LAS VEGAS, USA LIGHT REMAINS A SECRET” Interview by Jonathan Ellis Koert Vermeulen, the Belgium-based lighting designer who hit the headlines with his work for the Las Vegas spectacle ‘Le Rêve’, is passionate about light in all its aspects. In this interview he reflects on his work, his passion, and his aims. “Light is nothing”, he says. “It is energy, perhaps the greatest source of energy we know, and we have the arrogance to believe we can control it. It is intangible. You can feel the earth beneath your feet, you can feel the wind - but light remains a mystery. A secret. Yet...

“The concept included, for example, the use of film and a large swimming pool filled with water as the ‘floor’. The difficulties that created were incredible. We used a special test pool in Paris to try out our effects – research that took nearly a year and a half. In the end, we decided to use LED to bring the water to life. We installed an almost continuous ring of powerful LED fixtures near to the surface of the pool – and with that we were able to produce the effects we were after. “And then there was the dome, and the fact that the production would be in-theround. Early on we made the...

9 Electrical Power Station , Sparanise , Italy TOWARDS SLOW ARCHITECTURE Interview by Luigi Prestinenza Puglisi An interview with Enrico Frigerio on the subject of light, colour and slow architecture at the Sparanise Power Station. The 70,000 square metres of the Sparanise Power Station occupy a surface area of 110,000 m2 (sic), in other words the area of twenty football fields. Yet, thanks to the design of both colour and light, this large industrial complex seems neither dull nor oppressive. Enrico Frigerio, the architect, who in the eighties was a colleague of the architect Renzo Piano,...

I work with a team of 50 designers, and the ability to allocate creative resources to a project – to study, say, the specific requirements for lighting a reception area or a conference room – means that every project can be worked out in far greater detail than is generally the case. Of course, this is what our clients expect. We strive to work at the very highest level - our projects demonstrate this - and this is where quality is most demanded and best appreciated. “ Van der Heide believes that collaboration is the key to success. “Lighting used to be an after-thought. Architects would...

MERCEDES BENZ SHOWROOM, UTRECHT, THE NETHERLANDS Mercedes Benz wanted to change the signage on their façade due to internal changes. When the first signage was mounted there was less vegetation. This moment created the opportunity to put the signage higher up on the façade to improve the visibility from the two motorways which are located on both sides of the building. The light advertising company advised to use medium Power LED lines which are far more energy efficient compared to Neon.
