Cinimod Studio is a cross-discipline practice based in London specializing in the fusion of architecture and lighting design.
It was started by the architect and artist Dominic Harris, whose passion for interactive art and lighting design has produced built projects now found across the international art and architecture scene.
The ongoing work of Cinimod Studio is both visually stunning and technologically advanced. A dedication to research and development ensures that the studio stays abreast of the latest technologies and fabrication techniques.
The studio is currently involved in several projects in both the UK and abroad, and has designed bespoke lighting products that are now in production.
It is a fundamental belief of the studio that we should design the experience first and then use our best technologies and techniques for making it a reality.
The amazing “Emergence” lighting sculpture designed by London-based Cinimod Studio announces the arrival of Caviar House & Prunier to their new location at the heart of the new Heathrow Terminal 2’s International Departures Lounge.
The sculpture is a unique piece of art and light and a breath-taking innovative landmark created for the new terminal building at Heathrow.
“The lighting sculpture is named ‘Emergence’, and with playful relevance to Caviar House, captures the re-imagined movement of a school of fish moving underwater. It is a sculptural expression of the fascinating light patterns and shimmers that emerge across the collective bodies of fish as they move in harmony within water whilst reflecting the natural sun light. This is physically manifested as a kinetic moment frozen in space and time, and re-animated through cutting-edge interactive digital lighting. These lighting patterns are controlled in real-time from a live physics simulation modelled on the complex movements of a school of fish within the ocean,” it says in the project overview.
Weighing at 1.5 tonnes, the sculpture is 13 metres high and 8 meters wide, with a diameter of main mast of 15 centimetres.
“Emergence” lights up thanks to the 350,000 individually controllable white LEDs by OSRAM, while the primary structural material of the piece is carbon fibre.
