Decorating an industrial loft space might be somewhat of a road block for many interior designers. How do you make exposed metal pipe and concrete blocks aesthetically appealing? Well, the French-Brazillian architectural firm, Triptyque has found a way! Part of a design show - "do outro lado do muro” (the other side of the wall) - Pipe Light was an installation built in and around an abandoned home in São Paulo this past August. Combining metal piping, tubing and lamps - Pipe Light is both indoor lighting, and outdoor lighting! How innovative!
Modeled after a creeping plant or persistent weed, Pipe Light wraps itself around every wall, both inside and out to create a piece that bridges the gap between art and design. Commissioned by Houssein Jarouche - shop owner of Micasa, Pipe Light was installed in an abandoned house adjacent to Jarouche's store front. I don't know about you, but I think this is pretty cool stuff! This installation just goes to show that the ordinary can be made extraordinary. What's more ordinary than bare metal pipes? Lights out until next time! - Via Dezeen and Triptyque
