The Heart of Cito, light sculpture
2011, Cito

For the entrance of Netherlands exam institute CITO we designed an impressive light object. A big tree (8,5 x 5,5 meter), metaphor for growth, branching and gaining knowledge, changes colour day and night through a LED 'heartbeat'. Next to the light icon, we desiged special furniture for the reception and waiting area in the entrance. These correspond to the furniture on the roofterrace of the building that we also designed, see.
Her Royal higness queen Beatrix of The Netherlands opened the new building.
