A few weeks ago some members of the Circus team headed west to Frankfurt as part of our “ideas collection” for the bonanza of creativity that is currently taking place here in the company. Designers Sandra and Julia were headed to the Light+Building trade fair with Circus co-owner Christian, and Head of Maintenance Dietmar. Light+Building is the world’s largest fair for, well, lighting and building with a focus on intelligent sustainability and smart powered buildings. This was especially of interest for Christian and Dietmar, whilst Julia and Sandra explored some of the new trends in architectural and design light to provide inspiration for the changes to the Circus Hostel, Hotel and Apartments.
Luminale (see pictures below) is a festival of lighting design which runs parallel to Light+Building, and showcases 180 projects by international artists in public spaces and galleries all over Frankfurt. Our design team took the chance to explore many of the installations, and their personal highlights were the frozen rain shower of broken lightbulbs “Lagrimas de Sao Pedro” by Vinus Silva de Almeida and the beautiful sculptural objects „Reflecting Space – Messier Objekte” by Brigitta Weimer which literally reflected the milky way onto the walls and ceiling of the gallery they were displayed in.
