Seen at the entrance of the 2012 Ghent Light Festival in Beligum, Luminarie De Cagna stole the show with their brilliant, but sustainable installation.

At this year’s Ghent Light Festival in Belgium, the Italian family business, Luminarie De Cagna erected a gigantic colonnade as the symbolic entrance to the festival. Illuminated with 55,000 LED bulbs, the colonnade was transformed into a cathedral of light with Renaissance arches. If it appears as though this stunning majestic wonder towering at 28 meters high is a waste of electricity, you’ll be surprised to learn it only consumes 20 Kwatt/h. Though, Luminarie De Cagna may have stolen the show, other highlights included Kinect-inspired human mosaic tiles, a phone booth aquarium, and 3D projections on the Post Plaza building at Korenmarkt.
