Susan Lake Lighting Design has been collaborating with Aukett Swanke to design the lighting scheme for their Sleep Set concept room Bivouac for the Sleep exhibition 2016.
Aukett Swanke's concept for the Sleep Set 2016 is,
"Bivacco Bivouac Bivaque
Aukett Swanke have designed a completely immersive environment for the 2016 Sleep Set. Our
‘Sensation Oriented’ guest travels – often in groups – to affirm their values and aspirations, and this
room offers an escape to their real life, not from it. It offers a carefully calibrated combination of spatial and sensory experiences which are both personal and social; this is a room in which to retreat
and to come together. We are working with subtle challenges to the senses – sight, sound and touch – through the imaginative use of lighting, materials, acoustics and soft furnishings. This will encourage our guest to think about how they use and reconfigure the room, offering the opportunity to create their own reality – even if just for a night.
This room could be anywhere, but while you are in it, you can only be here."
We have been working together to create a unified design.
The Sleep exhibition is held at the Business Design Centre London on 22nd and 23rd November 2016. Please come along and see our Sleep Set.
