Light Imitates Art

Mood Rings, Lava Lamps, Monkey Lights, Glowing Crystals. The human race is absolutely astounded by lights and colours and this phenomenon of ‘mood lighting’ has crept its way into even the most humblest of living rooms – transforming an ordinary living space into enchanting experiences. Recently, lighting giant Phillips collaborated with the top design companies and creatives in Singapore to create a breathtaking experience of ‘oo’s and aa’s’ – and of course, Chew Interior designers were on hand to show visitors our brand of magic.

This ‘larger than light exhibition’ was powered by Phillips and its new range of LED lights that come in a range of exciting colours.  These mood lamps were the paint that our designers would use to show their creativity and display, the dramatic changes to a living space that an intelligent and creative application of coloured lights could affect. Their only limitation was the budget – $3, 000 worth of lights at market value could be used to decorate the living spaces chosen. Other than that, it was all down to the imagination and hard work of the designers.

Chew Interior designers chose a lounge setting for their set-up. Why? Well this is where the individual comes to relax, to put their mind at ease, forgetting the daily stresses of work and life and simply just sink into relaxation. Lighting would be used to amplify this feeling, to soothe and put at ease the individual or family looking for solace. The predominantly pastel lounge, with its Jetsons style reclining chair, cozy environment and minimalistic features were installed with tube lights that stretched from floor to almost the top of the ceiling.  The white room was chosen because like all art, the colours emitted from the LED light would be contrasted well against the walls and ceiling – displaying how they could change the mood of the room to full effect.

Just like magic, and with a little flick of a switch, the LED lights literally transformed the room from cooling blues to soothing warm yellows. It was an amazing display of something as basic as light and colour could be a powerful tool to change a static space into a dynamic experience that can be adjusted simply by replacing and changing the colour. The coloured LED added a new layer of design, and eye catching art work that creates a new milieu every time the lights come on.
