a collection: kaleidoscope coverings

taste the rainbow?

not quite, but you can definitely see it. this ingenious burst of public art comes from the colorful designers at ivo tavares studio in portugal.

bringing kaleidoscopic light to an otherwise droll shopping street in águeda, portugal, the design firm assembled nearly ten dozen umbrellas in varying patterns, arrangements and colors all to create the “right” amount of light for shoppers below (and yes, there is a “correct amount” of light. duh.).

magical, whimsical and moderately scientific, this is the type of art that doesn’t require you think (because who wants that), but just let’s you enjoy and nuzzle the rainbow.

next stop, portugal.
