Shylights

There is something so soothing and mesmerizing about this. These "performative light sculptures" by StudioDRIFT, are called Shylights. Inspired by flowers that close at night, these lights drop and "bloom" its several layers of silk to subsequently retreat upwards again. These lights can also be set to music and choreography from an iPad or iPhone. I can see this being a huge hit in some swanky lounge with the "I love my #selfie" crew, but lets be honest you get a pass with this one. For now you will have to go see them at the Rijkmuseum Amsterdam where they are on permanent display.
