CT umbra septiembre 3, 2010

Posted by christian saucedo in Other projects.

‘CT umbra’ by los angeles-based studio nondesigns is a pixilated interpretation of the new lexus compact hybrid, CT 200h. the installation was commissioned as a part of lexus’ ‘darker side of green‘ debate series which aimed to expand and inspire new audience on green issues.

The design utilized precise CNC computer-controlled machinery to sculpt an exact model of the CT 200h in an array of vertical lines. 2500 anodized aluminum bars of 1/2” thickness were cut to their specific lengths and inserted into their locations in the illuminated platform. To achieve a glowing effect of colours on the surface of the ”car”, each tips were lacquered with blue green on one side and yellow mica on the opposite. as the viewers walk around the art installation, they experience a gradual change in colour from gold to organic-blue–two seemingly contradictory perspectives of lexus’ fifth hybrid.
