Inviting viewers to experience a series of transitions, Becoming created an evolving experience of color and exploration. The immersive installation at Design Miami flipped through cycles of change to the reflect an evolution of patterns in nature. Based on Emil Galle’s drawing of the anemone a custom-designed wallpaper animated through washes of light in the RGB spectrum. The interplay of the lights with the cyan, green, and yellow printed wallpaper continuously changed the atmosphere of the room and perception of the layered patterns as they intensified or receded with the shifting lights. An infinity mirror flanked both ends of the room, creating an intriguing and mystifying experience. These visual portals captivated the viewer and beckoned associations to the large network of underground tunnels in the cellars of Perrier-Jouët’s Masion Belle Epoque.

A second iteration of this installation took place on Herzog and De Meuron’s 111 Lincoln Road parking garage. Projected onto the ceiling of this open-air structure, the shifting floral pattern created a canopy atop the urban structure. Contrasting with bold and raw concrete structure, the delicate lines of the patterns boldly lit the architecture balancing the atmosphere.

These installations were commissioned and inspired by Maison Perrier-Jouët.
