Play to the gallery

Installation for the exhibition "Stylepark Selected" at the Museum of Applied Art Cologne

"Play to the gallery" is an installation by Jung, which was shown from 15th to 21st January 2018 parallel to the "imm cologne" in the Museum of Applied Art Cologne.

In the sixties the switch LS 990 made the company Jung a pioneer in its field: it is square, reduced to the essentials and the first flat switch that has become a standard. In 2018, Jung's classic celebrates its 50th anniversary.

To celebrate the anniversary, the four master students of the Detmold School of Architecture and Interior Design Sarah Gmelin, Marielle Kanne, Mona Makebrandt and Marisa Spieker developed, in collaboration with Jung, the installation "Play to the gallery", which approaches the system switch in an unconventional way.

The central part of the installation is a switch that is mounted on a screen. If this is operated by a visitor, a photo is taken with long exposure. The running time is displayed on the screen; meanwhile, a band of light points the way to the camera.

The light band illuminates 74 video-playable LED strips M12-500 MK2.6 in 6500K from Schnick-Schnack-Systems in a click profile.

At the Salone del Mobile 2018 in Milan, the installation will be extended by further interactive elements, such as a swing, a seesaw and a rotary carousel. "Play to the gallery" invites you to an interactive experience in the showroom of Jung in the Via Statuto 16, Brera from 17th to 22nd April 2018.
