Fiet: An Interactive Light Sculpture from Toer

Dutch design studio Toer are known for thinking outside the box or pushing the envelope (Hey, remember their dining table that could fit in a mailable envelope?) with their experimental designs and their latest is pretty mesmerizing. Fiet is an lighting sculpture that interacts with sounds that surround it.

Made with hundreds of cones, the object expands and contracts and morphs like a giant, pointy amoeba. When it’s nice and quiet, it moves peacefully. Make a sudden noise and the sculpture becomes stressed and begins to shake, like it has feelings.
