Beijing Design Week helps surface the design world’s creme de la creme in architecture and design. Today, we feature a very sustainable light installation, appropriately titled MilkyWave by world-renowned design firm Aidia Studio. Illuminating a dilapidated stairwell of a former bicycle shop, a constellation of illuminated ceramic milk jars hang in strategic harmony. A wave of 1,664 translucent jars hang upside down illuminated by small light bulbs, creating a comprehensive “wave” of light that floods the stairwell.
“Milkywave reflects on the practice of city-making through the objects that populate the collective memory which becomes a quintessential part of the Hutong’s DNA. [The jars] can be found in every corner shop, underground station and local square.”
