“Pixel Cloud” LED Array Just Might Be The Coolest Architectural Accent Light Ever!


Finally! A really, really cool application of LEDs in architecture! Lately, everything has been “like wow, we replaced a bunch of light bulbs with LEDs…hooray!” or innovative LED illuminated windows on a very non-innovative cube building, or “look more facade uplighting”. I’ve been waiting for a really “WOW” architectural lighting project to come along and this is it.

Seriously, you have to go read the full article, these “Pixel Cloud” LED arrays are way cool for large atriums, lobbies, concert halls, my cubicle….just kidding on that last one. These “Pixel Clouds” are made of pendant-like LED globes suspended at various heights from the ceiling forming a 3-dimensional array. Each LED globe is cleverly constructed of 24 LEDs in a dodecahedron (I’ve been waiting years to write about a dodecahedron for something) , with each LED individually controllable and each globe individually addressable via some seriously sophisticated software.

The software and dedicated server can perpetually change the appearance of the cloud array even projecting images from passing clouds from a skyward pointed video camera mounted on the roof of the building. How kewl is that! I’m going to hit my boss up for one of these things.🙂
