Brightening up the streets of Madrid, the multidisciplinary team (fos) created an artificial light installation in front of a vegan restaurant called Rayen in Lope de Vega Street for four days and four nights (19-22 September 2013), a visual game of perspective and coloured volumes that attracted the puzzled looks of passers by and helped promote the good food of the restaurant.

In their first ever installation as a group, (Fos), which is the name of both the studio and the project, used 250m of yellow tape, a lamp, painted furniture and some pineapples: simple elements that put together with style and creativity evoked a warm and uplifting feeling in a typical street of Madrid. Indeed, the word (fos) in Greek means ‘light’ while in Catalan means ‘melted’.

 

 

 

“The tape covered both horizontal and vertical surfaces creating a skin which followed the beam's shape. The colour covered the items only where the light fell, regarding the front view'' 

 

 

 

 

(fos) is a studio based in Madrid and Barcelona and composed by Eleni Karpatsi, Susana Piquer and Julio Calvo: independent architects, interior designers, art directors and graphic designers who decided to join as a multidisciplinary team to create design experiences and, above all, have fun.
