Dive into a Glass of Champagne

2014

ABOUT THIS PROJECT

Dive into a Glass of Champagne is a light installation sponsored by Veuve Clicquot for Andaz Hotel, Liverpool Street. We imagined what it would be like to dive into a glass of Veuve Clicquot champagne, and thus created an installation of giant bubbles for guests to walk between and interact with. Each champagne coloured bubble can be plucked from its pendant and hugged, causing it to gently glow the famous Veuve Clicquot yellow.

HOW IT WORKS

Ranging in size from 50-100cm in diameter the bulb glow when physically squeezed. Once plucked from its magnetic charging stem the glowing bubble will remain charged for several hours.

 

Each bulb houses an Arduino Fio, high power LEDs and an Xbee. These are all controlled via our own app over Bluetooth.
