It is only appropriate that Emergence by Cinimod Studio, a design firm based in London, United Kingdom, would be inspired by a school of fish. It is a light sculpture that has been commissioned by Caviar House & Prunier, after all. The luxury restaurant, which is located in Heathrow airport, spirals 43 feet up towards the ceiling in a stunningly graceful way.

Made up of 350,000 LEDs, Emergence by Cinimod Studio has been choreographed "to dance with the simulated physics of a school of fish swimming in the ocean," according to Fast Co. Design. Its look varies with every second. Sometimes it is lit in a frenzy of lights as the entire school is imagined together while in other moments only a lonely fish can be seen.
