The Portuguese studio ateliermob recently carried out the project with which it won the “Lisbon's Christmas Lights Competition” for the realization of the lighting of Praça do Rossio.
Ateliermob Portuguese is a study based in Lisbon, which develops ideas and projects in architecture, design and urban planning. His team consists of young architects and designers who worked and studied in many countries.
Ateliermob has conceived a Christmas installation that tries to go beyond the images that are normally associated with Christmas, launching a message in English, the global language,trying to invite citizens to react in this moment in which there is no discussion that does not include the financial, individual and / or national situation and there is a strong perception of "no future"
The installation consists of lamps consisting of two reused 1,50 L plastic bottles, with a small high-brightness solar LED wrapped in coarse salt, a lamp of simple construction, low cost and without resorting to public lighting.
The lamps arranged on the square make up the phrase subject of the message readable from the highest points of the city
