urbana is a multi-disciplinary design and architecture studio led by rob ley. the studio’s latest project is a large-scale haptic light installation that is located inside a new development project in los angeles. the installation is located at the top of a grand public stairwell, which leads to an underground subway station. the designers at urbana wanted to explore the idea of tactile desire within public space. while most public installations focus on the masses as an audience, lumenscape explores interaction on an individual level. the installation is composed of translucent tiles that have a unique texture and allow the light behind them to shine through to create a vivid glow. the light changes in colour and intensity over time, further promoting interactivity with the user.
