Lighting Products and Fixtures Design Vana Installation by Christoph Klemmt & Rajat Sodhi The structural systems of plants act mainly in compression and bending. In reverse we can obtain a geometry that performs well in tension. Designed as a tensile single surface, Vana is suspended from the ceiling and descends as four glowing columns of light. The geometry, tessellated into triangular segments, has been digitally grown using a cellular algorithm. Lit with LEDs from the inside, light shines through the stitched joints and lightens the space with an immersive illumination. Vana forms an iso-surface around a venation network, a cortex around an anastomosis system.
