Semblance - bespoke lighting sculpture
Semblance by Haberdashery is situated in the reception area of the 77 Mayfair development. As one enters the reception area 8000 Borosilicate glass tubes mimic the effect of light breaking around the edge of a cloud. The undulating surface echoes the underside of a cloud canopy, the tip of each tube acting as a light pipe transferring a glow of light to its circular edge like a miniature halo. The sculpture’s lighting programming enhances this effect by following a 24hr sequence based on an astronomical clock, with selected scenes adding subtle changes throughout the day.
