“The design of Assen Van Assen is inspired by the city plan of Assen. The surface is made of corroded steel and is crossed by a network of light: A glossy drawing of the surrounding streets, entangled by a maze of glowing channels that pulsate with waves of blue and white light. The light of Assen Van Assen is activated by its visitors. People who enter the passage trigger a wave of light. This wave surges over the network, where it branches out and eventually coalesces into a gentle undercurrent. Each visitor experiences a unique play of light that mirrors both their own movement as the movement of life and energy in the city.” – Excerpt from Matthias Oostrik’s website.
