Today we like: lights

Candela lighting installation at the V&A in London

Today is Diwali, the festival of lights celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs, Jains and Buddhists. Marked by displays of brightly-coloured lights and fireworks, the festival celebrates the triumph of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, and good over evil.

To mark the occasion, we're revisiting some of the best lighting design from our archives, including an immersive installation that mimics the movements of fireflies and a spinning disk that created glowing light inside a dark gallery (pictured). See all our lighting design stories »
