Urban Wood web is an interactive light installation which enables you to experience the enigma of trees.

Trees are secretly part of an underground network. This network becomes visible when you enter a playground of illuminated roots. You will then be part of this network of trees, and the interplay of light enhances it to a unique experience. On top of that we add an extra layer that leads you to be immersed into the beauty and the power of nature itself!

The driving sources behind this project are spatial designer Merel van der Linden, and imagineer Marnix van de Vijver. Meet the Team »
