Dutch designer Herman Kuijer has just presented two new light works in the town of Zutphen. Halfway between architecture and art, this project infuses new life into grey, nondescript, merely functional areas of the urban landscape: passageways, underpasses and tunneled walkways. With a colorist light design, Herman Kuijer manages to make these areas more interesting for passersby, reviving them and making them safer.

As Kujier says: “My task was to create a sustainable work to allow people to pass safely through and also experience the aesthetic quality of the light. improving the public domain is a continuous challenge in the Netherlands.” An original way to improve the appearance of public urban areas and consequently the quality of our experience as inhabitants, an especially important aspect in our daily lives. In the Netherlands they are always a step ahead and an example to follow in this respect.
