Das Stue Hotel Berlin

Photos by Lichtbau Photos by Lichtbau The sculpture was parametrically modeled in Grasshopper, generating all the information needed as a feed: positions and lengths of rods as well as long lists with cost calculations and weight. The Grasshopper model generated info on positions, lengths, weight and costs. On the plan layout, each rod position was generated with Grasshopper and given an individual number and an individual length. Plan layout positioning, IDs, positions and lengths. Christian Schneider-Moll (Lichtbau) created a unique sculpture in the lobby of the Hotel Stue (previously the Danish Embassy in Germany) consisting of 864 LED-spheres mounted on an equal amount of rods. All spheres were to be positioned on different heights, according to a specific waveform created by Schneider-Moll. This meant an almost impossible task of sorting the material and assemble the sculpture. The solution was to parametrically specify all rod lengths and define their exact placement individually. With help from algorithmic tools (Grasshopper) Fredrik Skåtar created building instructions for this unique project. DAS STUE HOTELarrow_drop_down
