Czech Republic based lighting giant, Lasvit in collaboration with A49 architects realised a dynamically lit glass lighting sculpture titled Neurons for Prince Mahidol Hall in Bangkok, Thailand. The 2,000 seat theatre perched at the Mahidol University campus has been imagined with natural acoustics for opera and symphony orchestras and serves as a concert and ceremonial hall, auditorium and events venue.

The illuminating installation is engineered using advanced LED technology inside hand-made artistic glass components to welcome visitors with an illusion of movement controlled by a musical performance that brings the installation to life. Neurons responds to the music played in the space with varied light sequences and colours, turning rhythms and melodies into visual experiences. Its high-tech design and programming are supported by the meticulous craft of master glassmakers, building on a tradition of Czech glassmaking dating back nearly a 1,000 years.
