Alley of Light opens at Amsterdam Light Festival

Alley of Light is a project by Serge Schoemaker Architects and Digiluce. Connecting art and science, a collaboration of a creative engineer and an architect, the result is an alley defined by light in stead of stone buildings. Almost 2000 hand-made lights form an impressive matrix that can be experienced both from outside, looking at the wave-inspired light animations, and from within, as a narrow alley between the lights allows you to enter. This is the Alley of Light.

Shylight in Rijksmuseum

Certain types of flowers close at night, for self-defense and to conserve their resources. This highly evolved natural mechanism is called nyctinasty, and inspired Studio Drift to create Shylight, a light sculpture that unfolds and retreats in a fascinating choreography mirroring that of real flowers.

Digiluce worked with Studio Drift on Shylight from the first prototype. Shylight was commissioned by Rijksmuseum for the new Philips wing.

“Kapellbrücke” Luzern, Switzerland – our “Particle Plan” selected as winner

In collaboration with DUS, Studio Drift and Rombout Frieling, Digiluce has won the international competition to create one of the largest interactive light installations in the world.

The historic Chapel bridge, dating from 1333, is one of the most prominent tourist attractions in Switzerland. An international contest requested for a unique and inspiring lighting scheme that illuminates the bridge at night, while respecting the historical and rich cultural character of the city.

“Kapellbrücke” Luzern, Switzerland – selected for proposal

Digiluce is part of a team that was selected to propose a design for the 1000-year-old landmark bridge “Kapellbrücke” and connected “Wasserturm” in Luzern, Switzerland. The team was selected as one of nine teams from among 43 international entries and consists of Rombout Frieling, Studio DRIFT, DUS Architects, and Digiluce. Swiss press interviewed and photographed our team during a visit to the site.

Amsterdam Light Festival 2014

YUDO design

YUDO design developed SWOOF technology: a touchless interaction system for light fixture control.

In their first table lamp, YUDO combines the technology with energy saving warm LED lights.


FLYLIGHT is an interactive light installation by Studio DRIFT, composed of on average 200 glass tubes. The glass tubes light up and respond to a viewer. Like schools of fish the birds fly as if they were a single entity, creating complex continually shifting patterns. The behavior is an example of “self-organization” where no one bird leads the group. Rather each individual is reacting to the speed and direction of the few birds immediately surrounding it. Amazingly two birds never collide.


In the Golden Age the Oosterdok was home to the world’s most modern sailing vessels owned by the Dutch East Indies Company. Local ship builders allowed the Dutch to bring the world’s most precious goods to Amsterdam, by making use of the free wind. Amsterdam exists thanks to this mastership of the wind. fLUMENS are an experiment by Digiluce and OPENLIGHT to make light from the wind
