In mid-February Barcelona became the city of lights, design and technology thanks to the ninth edition of the Llum BCN festival. An artistic proposal with exhibitions, projections, performance and artistic installations in the Poblenou neighbourhood.
Among the many interesting proposals of this contest, “The Hackathon” by ProtoPixel stood out. A “marathon” of interactive lighting, where professional designers and architects collaborated with programmers, artists and creators to develop a lighting project. This year’s title was #HackTheLightUp and they featured mentors such as Antoni Arola, Jordi Ballesta from Last Night’s studio, and Moritz Behrens from Ingo Maurer. Also with Faro Barcelona, who shared and supported this space of creativity and entrepreneurship.
In addition, Faro was the promoter of the “Light & Emotions” award, a category related to the brand’s values, which always bets on meaningful design and that transmits, through the luminaries, the spirit and the desire to see life in different ways.
