The Conductor / Faye Toogood for Established & Sons

Brilliant to be able to see this fantastic interactive installation at Established & Sons by Faye Toogood for the London Design Festival. The installation is both visually spectacular but also really fun to interact with. The switches mounted in shades of blue & green resin are wonderfully jewel like and hard to resist. A nod to the furniture of Jo Nagasaka being shown adjacent in the showroom of Established & Sons. Inspiring to say the least.

Visitors to the gallery will be able to watch – and control – a rhythmic symphony of light played out on a giant circuit board of zinc-plated steel, passivated to provide insulation from electrical interference. Echoing the graphic of an equaliser, 160 fluorescent bulbs, fed by a skein of wires and cables, light up in alternating currents. The circuit is completed by the audience themselves, who have the capacity to “conduct” this electrical spectacle from the centrepiece switchboard.
