Humanscale’s installation for Milan design week mimics the movements of its visitors, says its designer Todd Bracher in this movie filmed by Dezeen.
The New York-based designer has created an interactive light sculpture for the manufacturer of ergonomic workplace products.
Entitled Bodies in Motion, the installation was designed by Bracher in collaboration with digital designers Studio The Green Eyl, and aims to capture the feeling of human movement.
“We wanted to capture human movement in a way that’s truly pure and very connected to Humanscale’s DNA,” Bracher told Dezeen.
The installation, which is situated in the warehouse of Ventura Centrale in Milan, features a minimal representation of the human body formed of lights that respond to the movements of visitors.
As their bodies are scanned by camera sensors, 15 motorised lights project tightly-focussed white beams onto a screen fifteen metres away. The points of light on the screen correspond to key points of the subject’s body such as their head, shoulders, elbows, hands, sternum, hips, knees or feet.
The exhibition is open to the public at Ventura Centrale in Milan until 14 April 2019
