When Nimbus decided to unleash their new line of luminaires and set them battery-driven free we decided to be as radical as them and design a fair stand completely illuminated by only untethered lighting. This conceptual idea found its biggest supporter in more than 13 km electrical cords hanging from the ceiling frame. At least to the point when fire safety entered the design process stage. At the end the cords morphed into fabric ropes, loosing their electrical abilities but maintaining their abstract meaning.
