L&L is the technical sponsor of the Experience Room, created by The Dark Art movement of lighting designers, which focuses on the relationship between light and darkness.
The space, designed by Chris Lowe, Philip Rafael and Andrés Sánchez Alonso, takes the visitor on a journey of discovery of our understanding of darkness and vision.
The installation consists of three rooms with increasing levels of darkness, in which visitors can become used to the dark and explore their sense of vision in an environment that is completely devoid of light.
The Dark Art is a movement that examines the relationship between darkness and light in the context of Lighting Design with an aim to creating a new philosophy in this sector that promotes the positive use of darkness as a design tool, giving the lighting designer greater freedom of expression with light.
