Exhibited in Biennale design Saint Étienne, Aura reflects a new lighting design, crafted from light and sound that interact with users. Allowed us to experience the interaction of our movements. Exploring the synchronisation between musical instrument and emotional response; as fascinating as relaxing.

The distinctive life force that surrounds a person, place, or thing

The liquid visualisation of Aura responds to people’s presence becoming a visceral experience. This new kind of lightform is a result of  conversations and experiences of Paul Thursfield, Creative Director at Philips Innovation Group and Simon Rycroft, student at Goldsmiths College. Bring us the harmony combination of light and sound. Expressing the concept of “Dwellbeing” by integrating the characteristics of LED lighting and digital sound to create the responsive situation and occasion, positively influencing people’s emotions and state of mind.
