Loyens & Loeff’s core value of “we put people at the heart of our business” is the key inspiration behind the creation of this digital art installation.
As a leading European Law & Tax firm, Loyens & Loeff prides itself on a people-centric approach. We were asked to articulate this in physical art form with a brief that looked to connect their new Amsterdam office space with their staff, customers, brand and the city around them.
The concept for the piece went through various physical iterations to achieve the level of interactivity that the client desired. Power supply, infrastructure and accessibility presented project challenges and resulted in an LED track system that enables flexibility in the lighting programmes.
Our response & approach
Taking visual cues from the famous canals and waterways of Amsterdam, we created a bespoke installation for the firm’s Hourglass office entrance and atrium - a responsive lighting piece ripples outward when triggered by movement within the area. The interactive nature of the piece is key to representing the Loyens & Loeff staff and their intrinsic value and impact within the company.
The use of a programmable LED track enables a wide spectrum of colour, vibrancy and brightness to create the desired mood and aesthetic. The light settings are inspired by the colours of the sky throughout the day – from the light yellows and peach of morning sunrise to the blue brand colour of Loyens & Loeff in the middle of the day and deeper, rich purple shades in the evening. Oh, and there is a ‘party mode’ for the piece … this one is self-explanatory!
