"the brook - Inspired by Lord Alfred Tennyson’s poem by the same name, ‘brook’ is a custom-designed, dynamic installation. Floating above the dining space of a large corporate headquarters it makes for an arresting view through the façade and an engaging experience when indoor. Like a brook, the installation flows & ebbs, turns & curves; and even though people come & people go, the brook’s movement remains perpetual. This dynamism in the form of a continually changing visual spectrum. A highly reflective mirrored finish ring reflects the coming and going, eating and drinking that goes on under it, while providing 500+ lux at full intensity. Superimposed over this is a layer of saturated light that drenches the space in colored hues. The installation is composed of nearly 800 light fixtures, weighing 17 tons, spread over 1500 sq. ft., suspended mid-air at 17’ above floor. From ensuring structural integrity, to the inter-weaving of building services; from designing controls to ball-socket joints; from logistic planning, to the coming together of architectural thought, lighting intent, product design, structural engineering & electrical trades, 'the brook' represents life & an ecosystem in itself"
Established in an era when architectural lighting-as a discipline was still in its infancy in India, and when the only lighting designers were either working in theatre or the film industry, Design Matrix helped to pioneer lighting design in this field.
We have come a long way. Much like the discipline and its recognition, we too have grown, matured and expanded our horizons. We have a portfolio of nearly two hundred completed and on-going projects worldwide; we have offices in NewDelhi, Mumbai and Sydney; and, we are beyond our fifth year of ISO 9001:2008(now 2015) certification. The most satisfying of all has been our long-standing relationship with our clients, built on our shared values of integrity, professionalism and respect. This, and our expanding client base, bears testimony to the quality, creativity and ingenuity of our work.
Lighting design - at Design Matrix - has always been about creating experiences with light that go beyond its functional use. Our collaborative efforts with light are finding newer ways to engage human senses and emotions. Exploring the myriad emotional hues of light.
The seamless amalgamation of art, design, technology and engineering that we have achieved in our product designs, is also evident in our standalone light installations that can best be described as ‘light art’.
