The installation consists of 14 disc like light motives that hang horizontally above the visitors. The motives have a diameter of 2,20m and an average of 1600 light points. The design of the motive pattern varies. The project is the result of a restricted competition organised by the City Council of Munich.
The project focuses not only on the design of the light motives but especially on the atmospheric effect that will be created. The lighting deals with the public space around the market kiosks. The light motives hang like big chandeliers above the visitors and turn the mostly dark space between the kiosks and trees in the winter months into a bright access hall to the market.
The distribution of the installation can be altered in the following years or augmented with additional light motives.

Brut Deluxe is an architecture and design studio headed by Ben Busche. Founded in 2004, Brut Deluxe operates today from two platforms in Madrid and Munich.

Brut Deluxe is focused on the investigation and creation of space and its atmospheric qualities. The projects oscillate between different scales of urban intervention: from ephemeral artistic installations to industrial design, construction design and urbanism.

According to project objectives, a multidisciplinary team involving architects, artists, designers and engineers are engaged in the design process. Brut Deluxe thrives on the international academic education and provenance of its team members.

Brut Deluxe is oriented towards the social, economic and aesthetic qualities of the projects and combines both scientific strategies and artistic approximations in the creative process.
