The Light Flowers are permanent outdoor devices for the city of Nanchang in Jiangxi, China. They are a light installation and street furniture at the same time and offer a shady and rain-protected seating area for resting and relaxing. 
Each flower consists of ten transparent petals made of acrylic glass, which have an extension of over 5 m and cover an area of 20 m2. Although all the petals are made of the same material, the dichroic film attached to the top of each petal creates a surprising play of colors and shadows in daylight. As the light rays are reflected depending on the viewer's angle of vision, the movement along the units offers a mesmerizing color experience.

At night, dynamic LED lighting integrated into the metal profiles illuminates a carved pattern on the petals displaying the full range of rainbow colors.


The Light Flowers were a direct commission by MixC Nanchang. They are produced by a local constructor and the first 3 units were installed for the Spring Festival 2022.
