Blossom is an installation concept that provides sunshade for outdoor space during the day and illuminates its surrounding at night. Each pillar has a built-in circular seating area for people to sit in the shade. The pillars can be installed in specific layout to form a larger area of shade. when the structure begins to open up at night, a spotlight in the middle section of the pillar pointing upwards will be switched on. The light is diffused by the translucent material and illuminates the space underneath. The goal of this project is to create a practical yet poetic experience for the public space.
