When the Bella Sky Hotel launches in Copenhagen May 16th guests are greeted in the foyer by The Bella Chandelier – a living scenography of light and color created by GXN, the R&D department of Danish architects 3XN.

With the aim of bringing art and science together in one unique light and color experience, the multidisciplinary team of GXN has been on a journey exploring the realm between structure, technology and design. After a development of various phases the journey has come to an end and the light sculpture will be installed this week at the Bella Sky Hotel designed by 3XN.

The advanced geometry of the light sculpture is inspired by the stringent yet dynamic design of the Bella Sky that called for a unique collaboration of partners. Kasper Guldager Jørgensen, Head of GXN explains: GXNs constant strive for experimenting with the unknown can only be realized by the collective effort of many partners. Our multidisciplinary way of working with technology design and advanced structures proved invaluably important in this project, since the challenges that emerged during design and construction only where solvable once the knowledge from fields of architecture and engineering were combined.
