‘Bauhaus’ provides a crisp, refined and minimal light presence through a seven storey stairwell in Shoreditch’s Arnold House. Celebrating the purposeful aesthetic defined by the early 20th-century movement, forty cylinders of warm white light cascade through the central stairwell, each dipped in a warm red hue adding a bold dose of colour to the interior, increasing in saturation as the evening unfolds. Descending almost 30 metres, the perspective is almost infinite when viewed from the ground floor – each fluted glass and black anodised construction gently illuminating the dramatic staircase.
