New media design studio ENESS is changing the way we perceive the four walls around us.
February 17th, 2017
Award-winning new media studio ENESS is reimagining walls. Their 20-year obsession for what could emerge from the mix of art and technology led to a two-year journey to launching LUMES.
LUMES is a light emitting canvas designed to integrate into interior walls and other surfaces imaginable. Their aim is to create immersive experiences that seamlessly blend into any space. LUMES uses LEDs in an elegant way, artfully synchronizing visuals to tell stories through colour and movement.
With LUMES, architects can create environments where walls have the ability to react to time, weather, movement, vibration, audio – even skeletal and facial recognition. Each technical flourish has been designed to create a singular visual experience for the built environment.
ENESS develops a narrative to curate each site experience, programming LUMES visuals that range from animated illustrations, through to generative 3D visuals, colour gradients, complex patterns and illusions.
If “every great architect is – necessarily – a great poet… a great original interpreter of his time”, as Frank Lloyd Wright says, LUMES is the instrument in designing a new emotive experience.
ENESS is currently producing a small amount of limited edition canvases. Learn more by getting in touch.
