Blossom is an installation concept that provides sunshade for outdoor public space during the day and illuminates its surrounding at night. Inspired by nature, the structure can expand like how flower blooms. The system can also work as ambient lights at night. There is a customized spotlight embedded in the middle section of the structure. When the structure begins to open, the spotlight pointing at the top will be switched on and gradually gets brighter until it is fully opened. The light will then be diffused by the translucent material and illuminates the space underneath. The goal of this project is to create poetic experiences and practical functions for the public.
