Pipe Light: Mi Casa’s Interactive Public Art in São Paulo
On the relatively calm United States Street, in a high end neighborhood in São Paulo, one house stands out amidst the myriad of office buildings and stores. Mixing shadow and light, translucency and opacity, Pipe Light invites passers-by to interact with the shapes and colors of what is, in reality, an art installation. Architecture studio Tryptique decorated the interior and exterior of this previously abandoned house with metal tubes and lights. The tubes surround and wrap the house, both inside and out, creating a cybernetic effect. The project was commissioned by Mi Casa, a design store adjacent to the house. The lamps used in the installation are sold instore.
