Lighting art at EYE, the new Amsterdam film museum

Lighting art at EYE, the new Amsterdam film museum

On 4 April, the EYE Film Institute Netherlands was opened – after having been relocated to a brand-new and above all larger building – in an inauguration ceremony attended by Queen Beatrix. The futuristic building has included 92 Starbricks, a work by artist Olafur Eliasson. Starbrick is part of Zumtobel’s Masterpiece collection – works of lighting art developed by the luminaire manufacturer in collaboration with renowned architects, designers and artists.

ZELENI PAVILJON / RESTORAN

The most important element and the inspiration for this project is the location itself, with extremely high quality existing vegetation densely distributed throughout the plot and gradually diluted out toward the eastern edge. The idea of the new Pavilion / Restaurant is to construct a space by mapping the area of high quality trees and to define the remaining territory for construction.

Head of GXN, Kasper Guldager Jørgensen refers to the project as an Architectural Cookbook and says of the collaboration, ‘We move in parallel worlds. NOMA’s dedicated and creative engagement in gastronomy is similar in many ways to GXN’s experimental take on new materials and ingredients in the architectural world.’

The Weinkellerei Höchst has opened a second wine shop in the Main-Taunus shopping mall. Resembling a library of learned tomes, wine bottles fill the store from floor to ceiling along all three interior walls. A mirrored ceiling band running around the edges of the space further multiplies this effect in the vertical.
