Odesa Food Market
by Expolight

Andrii Bezuglov

The lighting in the food market changes in sync with the sun to keep it active throughout the day.

In the morning the light is cool, flooding and soft, by lunchtime it warms up and gradually shows accent spots on the tables, in the evening the light becomes more dramatic, with the most contrasting accents and nuanced work with shadows.

With the help of several light sources, one tree is revealed with picturesque shadows over most of the circular vault. We selected the optics and the location of the light sources for the widest possible contrast shading.

This project has been longlisted in the architectural lighting design category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
