LeveL II

a delicate light mobile that is
sensitive to movement

LeveL II  is a further development of the ‘LeveL – the fragile balance of Utopia’ -installation.
The light mobile consists out of several interconnected rods, that can hang like a mobile or a chandelier in a space. Each end of the rods carries a delicate illuminated lampshade. If left by itself, the structure finds its perfect equilibrium and each end of the rods lights up to the brightest level so that the piece illuminates the room. Once somebody comes close, touches the piece, or even with a breeze of air, the installation starts tilting. Depending on the tilt of the rods, the light lowers so that it is just dimmed.
Every movement occurring in the space – whether introduced by visitors or unpredictable elements – transforms the light object’s shape and brilliance. The light mobile can be switched from sensitive mode into chandelier mode, in which the piece shines continuously to illuminate a space. The intensity of the light can be dimmed in four steps with a remote control.
The piece was developed for Victor Hunt and is available in various sizes. Each piece can be adapted to the space.
