LIKE Architects has worked with IKEA before last year when they took thousands of plastic bag dispensers to create “Frozen Trees” [2]. Their latest project was part of a plan to introduce IKEA’s line of energy efficient LED bulbs – specifically the Ledare Bulb series [3], which uses at most 8.5 W per bulb.

LEDscape is made up of 1,200 Ledare bulbs and 1,200 Hemma floor lamp bases in a range of heights. The result is a dizzying array of lights arranged in a maze so visitors can walk through the installation. The lights were installed in a way that at night they would slowly turn on and then pulse to create a constantly evolving scene. Situated in a courtyard of the entro Cultural de Belém in Lisbon, LEDscape delighted visitors throughout the holiday season.
