Windlicht

Award: Graphite Pencil

Graphite Pencil / Spatial & Experiential Design / Design for Public Spaces / 2017

WINDLICHT shows the beauty of green energy by connecting windmill blades with lines of light. Special software and tracking technology detect the windmill blades rotating at 280 kilometres per hour. Roosegaarde: "WINDLICHT creates the missing link between the Dutch and the beauty of our new landscape." He was inspired by Kinderdijk. For him these windmills from 1740 are a perfect example of Dutch innovation. Reconnecting with the landscape and creating a positive image around green energy also drives him. Roosegaarde developed the artwork together with his team of designers and engineers.
