The Oïphorique by Atelier Oï is a bold light installation by the Swiss design label. Created to celebrate the brand's 20th anniversary, this spirited sculptural piece is dreamlike and surreal.

Hanging vertically, the light installation resembles a jellyfish in water. Constructed from a multitude of accordion-like paper lanterns, the piece connects the lanterns together making for a visually intriguing final product.

Because of its versatile materiality, the sculpture's multiple arms expand, giving this art piece a kinetic and interactive quality. Made to resemble a living sea creature, this sensational sculpture changes in color, varying from white light to neon green tones. With an outer-worldly glow and highly conceptual design, the Oïphorique by Atelier Oï art piece is mysterious and memorable.
