FBCC Corporate Members Light Cognitive and the Finnish Institute in the UK and Ireland are supporting Empathy Echo Chamber at London Design Biennale

Please marks your calendars for London Design Biennale that takes place from 1-27 June 2021 at Somerset House.

FBCC Corporate Member, Light Cognitive, has designed the light panels of Finnish artist Enni-Kukka Tuomala’s installation Empathy Echo Chamber presented at the design event. The bespoke light installations were made by hand for the Finnish pavilion. Light Cognitive reproduces human-centric natural light, with an award-winning innovation that follows nature’s circadian rhythm.

Empathy Echo Chamber challenges contemporary ideas of echo chambers as emblematic of polarisation and isolation in the information age. In the Empathy Echo Chamber, brought to life both as a physical inflatable installation and a virtual space online, visitors are encouraged to reflect on their experiences and perspectives together and respond to each other through empathy.

“The themes of the Finnish pavilion and the Biennale seemed important and topical to us, especially in the post-pandemic period. It is an honor to participate in the pavilion with our light works that match the natural light and the cycle of the day, handcrafted in Helsinki for this event, ”says Anne Salomaa, Marketing Director of Light Cognitive.

The installation is also supported by FBCC Corporate Member the Finnish Institute in the UK and Ireland and the The Finnish Embassy in London. 

London Design Biennale brings together forward-thinking designers, artists and cultural actors from across the globe. The 2021 edition, curated by Es Devlin, takes “Resonance” as its theme. #LDB21
