Fragment: Dubai’s Unidentified Flying Light Fixture

by Range

Nope, this isn’t a UFO, it’s a functional modern art installation that was installed in the atrium of the Level Shoe District, a 96,000 sq. ft. footwear emporium, situated within the Dubai Mall. Of course, something this extravagant would only be in a shoe store in Dubai.

The sculpture, called “Fragment” is a 25-foot-high structure composed of 421 octahedron frames. It was developed by United Visual Artists, and the entire framework was designed to channel light downwards from the glass ceiling above to illuminate the interior during the daytime. When it’s dark, the structure also casts light from hundreds of integrated fluorescent tubes.

It’s definitely an impressive lighting fixture, if you can call it that, though I wouldn’t want to have to change a bulb in it when it burns out.
