Layers installation is a light installation by Norwegian designer Daniel Rybakken at the wonderful Swedish Institute in Paris with opening during Nuit Blanche. The installation was realized together with the Norwegian Embassy in Paris and the Swedish Institute, with help from Luceplan.
The Layers installation is connected with Rybakken’s previous work, as Colour light (designed in collaboration with Andreas Engesvik) with Ligne Roset 2011 and Layers light, presented at Spazio Rossana Orlandi the same year.
The minimalistic white and even surfaces become the ultimate contrast to the 16th century-building. The individual objects is bound together by the subtle interplay of light, originating from the centre of the installation. The soft gradient of light emphasizes the differences in material and shape between the composition of layers, and the facade as the background, says Daniel Rybakken.
