Built in Turku, Finland for artist Jan-Erik Andersson’s Doctorate in Fine Arts at the Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki, the Life on a Leaf house has been described as unique. Lighted by AD-Lux Oy with full spectrum Viva-Lite lamps.
“The form of the Leaf House is unique. By day it resembles a strange hat or misshapen boat; by night a Jack O’ Lantern, glowing from within, its windows evoking the abstracted eyes and mouth of some Finnish folklore giant. Though the structure appears quirky and follyesque – modernism goes Moomin – it is far from haphazard.”
Viva-Lite partners AD-Lux were responsible for the full-spectrum lights throughout the house and reported from the opening party that under the Viva Lite lamps the colors of the house are real and beautiful.
