11 Reappearing confidence
Dommelstraat / Bruggetje
With Reappearing Confidence, Ben Hohmann and his team at Department B, want to create awareness of a special asset of Eindhoven: The Dommel waterway. By creating a light pattern in the Dommel Bridge railing, crossing the Dommelstraat with the Parklaan.
For now, the pattern will follow a predesigned programme. But in the future, Hohmann wants to create an interactive bridge, on which users can play around with the light and create their own pattern, fitting the way the would like to present the bridge to the city.
The bridge has been subject of talk among designers for years. And now Hohmann has taken it upon himself to create something special. "I'd like to do this as a service, from an observant civillian to a city that's full of design."
