The Magnetic 'Crystal' Light Installation Glows as a Cluster

'Crystal' is a unique magnetic LED light installation that now has a permanent home in the Netherlands, after being in several other major European cities throughout the year.

Hundreds of thousands of magnetic LED lights are placed on a magnetic floor mat, which allows the crystal cluster to glow in this area. When the crystals are picked up, as you might expect, they begin to lose their lustre.

The installation encourages people to spell out messages, make designs, take photos and even take a crystal home, although there isn't much magic without the help of a magnet in close proximity. This truly illuminating installation makes an interesting addition to cities, especially since the crystalline shapes of the lights seem like they could be a phenomenon of nature.
