The light installation becomes the centrepiece in the reception atrium (50 feet high) of a leading spice manufacturing company. Its design traces the journey of the process of cooking, ascribing to it a tangible, sculptural sense. The 35-feet-tall light installation is suspended from the ceiling, representing beauty in its truest form — mirror finished stainless steel balls, almost glass-like in feel, and floating ‘aroma rings’ of light keep enlarging as they spiral up and spread out.
Spices and herbs are depicted as vital determinants in the making of a culinary masterpiece, as they waft gracefully from ‘vessel’ below, pervading the air with flavour and fulfilment.
The light installation essentially, is redolent of everything that creates a tempting gastronomic experience, celebrating the role of spice-making as a work of art, while paying homage to those who are deeply involved in this undertaking. Designer Vibhor Sogani recognizes and honours the simple, yet painstaking nature of the culinary arts, prompting the ‘food artist’ to take a bow!
