Molo Cloud Softlight in the Vancouver Sun, and in the Paris Annex show suite

September 27th, 2010

Molo, the celebrated Vancouver design studio known for innovative collapsible and flexible designs, talks lighting in the Vancouver Sun.  A group of molo’s cloud softlights are installed at the Paris Annex show suite (see photo).  The LED installation provides general, ambient lighting to create mood, and gives the room a soft shape and a friendly feel.

To get a closer look, visit the Paris Annex show suite at the courtyard of the Garage building, 12 Water St; the show suite is open daily from noon to 5pm, except Fridays.

The adjoined Water Street properties were honoured with the 2010 Lieuntenant-Governor of British Columbia Award in Architecture, and profiled in Architecture BC, the journal of the Architecture Insititute of BC.

One juror’s comment:

“This integrates history, design elements … context, site, and program. What impressed me is how all these elements are integrated while keeping the character of the existing area.”

Congratulations go to Acton Ostry Architects for the honour.
