Between April 9 and 14, 2013 the art installation „FLUIDIC – Sculpture In Motion“ is being displayed in the Temporary Museum for New Design as part of the Fuorisalone in Milan. The installation was designed and produced by WHITEvoid for Hyundai’s Advanced Design Center. Combining high-power laser projectors, a dynamic point cloud and the interactions of its viewers WHITEvoid brought the design philosophy of Hyundai to life and transformed it into a vividly poetic art experience.
WHITEvoid is happy to have worked with a fantastic team on this project:
Joreg, Sebastian Gregor, Anton Mezhiborskiy (checksum5)
Daniel Teige, Marian Mentrup (hammersnail)
Michael Sollinger (LaserAnimation Sollinger)
Philips Lumiblade presents the LivingSculpture 3D module system designed by WHITEvoid at the Euroluce trade fair during the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan. The system is now officially launched to the marked commercially available. The advanced OLED ceiling lighting system can be configured and ordered via the products webconfigurator also designed and programmed by WHITEvoid. WHITEvoids LivingSculpture design has won the prestigious Red Dot Product Design Award and the iF Product Design Award.

WHITEvoid presents their unique motorized winch system “Kinetic Lights“ with new LED light elements at the Prolight+Sound trade fair in Frankfurt.
The “LivingSculpture 3D module system” is the latest addition to the Philips “LivingSculpture” product family. WHITEvoid designed a modular plug and play OLED system that allows for infinite variations in layout and arrangement of a ceiling or wall lighting installation. The highly flexible system consists of an online configurator to create and order the individual arrangement, a plug and play modular hardware system and an iPad controlled light animation application.

The LivingSculpture kinetic installation was created by WHITEvoid as the center piece for the Philips trade fair stand at the Light+Building trade fair 2012 in Frankfurt.
The installation is composed of 24 movable triangular aluminium frames carrying 864 ultra thin glass OLEDs (organic light emitting diodes) all together. 24 of these movable frames form the hexagonal arrangement of the installation with a diameter of 6 meters. Computer controlled slowly changing and evolving movement and luminance patterns accent the OLED specific mirror and light surface texture.
DigiStage is WHITEvoids video projector based digital stage lighting system. The system was initially commissioned for the theater play “Fanny and Alexander” by theater director Sebastian Hartmann. The piece inspired by Ingmar Bergmans movie premiered in September 2011 at Leipzigs Central Theater.
WHITEvoid designed a projector based digital lighting system with integrated depth camera tracking to pixel map the whole stage area of about 120m2. Since the theater play used a flexible scene order, we enabled the lighting designer to select or deselect actors on the fly via remote. This way making them active or inactive as triggers for digital light follower effects and generative visuals. Multiple effects can be assigned to individual actors in almost infinite combinations.
Whitevoid was commissioned to create a kinetic light show to accompany the inaugural presentations of the spectacular BUGATTI VEYRON the worlds fastest and most expensive street car and the new SEAT EXEO for the Volkswagen Group Show at the International Motor Show 2011 in Frankfurt.
80 Kinetic Lights rods were specifically produced for this event and arranged in a 22 x 8 meter grid with a hight movement of 7 meters to perform a ballet of lights.

“The Crystal Chandelier” is a permanent kinetic light art installation for the Tsvetnoy Central Market, a new department store in central Moscow.
The 14 meter wide and six meter deep hanging sculpture evokes the impression of a giant chandelier formed by 49 two meter high crystal shaped light elements. The installation constantly generates everchanging shape variations, movement and light animations with individual impressions for the day and night presentation.
At night when the building is closed the art piece falls into hybernation with only very few movements but a very strong pulsating heartbeat of light. This gives the Tsvetnoy market with its glass facade a unique landmark appeal in Moscows night scenery.
The new “kinetic lights“ product lifts up to 5 kg and features full color RGB and RGBW (plus white) LED output. Each winch is individually addressable via DMX for dynamically contolled cable acceleration and velocity control. The current winch generation is also equipped with an auto setup function with cable end position self-detection. The technology is registered for a patent. The patent is pending.
The new winch design has won the iF Product Design Award 2011
The system is now available for rental or purchase. Please find detailed information on the “kinetic lights” project website
The international bathroom appliances company Roca desired to present its art and design affinity at the “100% Design 2010“ exhibition in London.
WHITEvoid designed a black monolithic trade fair stand as a stage for the specially developed kinetic light sculpture “THE WAVE“ The sculptural hanging light arrangement forms generative wave patterns complimented by blue light animations, symbolising the main element of ROCA, water.
WHITEvoids trade fair stand design for Roca was awarded with the iF Communication Design Award 2011, the DDC German Designers Club Award 2011 and is shortlisted for the international Lighting Design Award 2011.

We were invited to present our new FLARE facade module at the MaterialXperience in Rotterdam. MaterialXperience is an exhibition and trade fair on novel materials and surfaces. Being impressed by the feedback we received, we’ll give it an extensive outdoor test now before starting the production of multiple modules. In the current issue of m+a report you’ll find a feature about the system.
WHITEvoid develops the kinetic light art piece “Constellation” for the trade fair stand by Swiss exhibition design and trade fair building company MESSERLI @ “Suisse EMEX 2009” Zurich, Switzerland. “Constallation” consists of a flexible array of ceiling mounted cable winches with hanging LED light modules. Each light module can be adjusted individually in height and luminance by the control software. By synchronizing position and light animation, complex shapes and light patterns can be generated within the array.
The Polygon Playground installation is the center piece of the FREEZE! Art Show at the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts
The ATOM project will be performing at Mutek Festival Montreal, Quebec, Canada (International Festival of Digital Creativity and Electronic Music, 10th Edition). ATOM performances on 29.05. at 7pm and 30.05. at 3pm + 7pm. For more info visit http://www.mutek.org
WHITEvoid was commissioned by SMUKfest, one of Denmarks largest music festivals to create a large scale interactive lounge object. The POLYGON PLAYGROUND offers room for up to 40 persons at a time to walk, sit and explore its multifaceted surfaces. The installation features a software aided 3D surface projection system to cover the object with a seamless 360 degree projection mapping. An additional sensory system detects peoples positions and proximity.
WHITEvoid presents the first prototype of “FLARE – kinetic ambient reflection membrane” at the “NEXT art & technology exhibition” in Arhus, Denmark. FLARE is a pneumatic building facade system. FLARE consists of a number of tiltable metal flake bodies. By reflecting ambient or direct sunlight the individual flakes of the system act like pixels formed by natural light.
WHITEvoids Christopher Bauder and Robert Henke (aka Monolake) present their performance piece “ATOM” at the Centre Pompidou in Paris. There will be two shows at 8:00 and 9:30. Both shows are sold out!!
