Dutch-based designer Dennis Parren created this light-emitting tower during the Lowlands Music Festival in The Netherlands. The tower reaches 18 meters in height and is comprised of a metal scaffolding framework.

The exterior of the tower reveals triangular panels of fabric that create a cohesive pattern. Titled ‘Lift,’ this dual art and light design provides Lowlands Music Festival with a constant light source and a unique visual display that entices guests. However, the main goal for Lift is to provide a central meeting space at the festival for people to gather in.

The tower itself is controlled by a computer that is located in the center of the structure. The system uses four LEDs to "generate over 1,000 watts of light -- the light sources move up and down the middle of the tower to create shifting effects on the external panels."
