Fibulae

The 1,800 square foot pop-up shop for Boffo Building Fashion displayed the work of Los Angeles-based jewelry designer, Irene Neuwirth. During the day, the room’s perimeter walls are lit, which is then reflected by the sculpture’s golden metal surface. At night, on the other hand, light from fixtures mounted within the sculpture filters through the flower-like cut-outs on the metal, projecting patterned light on all of the perimeter walls and ceiling. In both scenes, Neuwirth’s jewelry – displayed in individual glass cases – takes center stage through the use of ceiling mounted pin-spots, and small LED accents mounted to the actual sculpture.
