the initial prototype, Studio Roosegaarde has spent more than four years working
on this electronic artwork, consisting of hundreds of flexible stalks tipped
with LED bulbs. The stalks undulate like electronic dune grass and light up
when someone walks past. Dune 4.2 has previously been installed at temporary locations
including the Maastunnel and has now been given a permanent home in De Esch.
with the opening of the permanent installation in Rotterdam, it was announced
on October 17 2009 that Daan Roosegaarde had won the Dutch Design Award in the spatial
design category for his work Flow 5.0.
V2_Lab congratulates Daan Roosegaarde and the studio staff on this fantastic
news and hopes that the Intimacy project will similarly fulfill the great expectations
harbored for it. It is expected that the first designs for this remarkable wearable
technology project will be presented at the December 10 Test_Lab.
