Big events like the Olympics and World's Fairs are a great place to discover the best in international design, and pavilions such as Coca Cola's at last year's London games eloquently showcase the vision of contemporary artists, architects and designers.
Designed by Asif Khan and Pernilla Ohrstedt, the pavilion represents the brand's ubiquitous red and white color scheme in a series of more than 200 "air pillows" that, when touched by guests, reproduce a variety of sounds from Olympic theme song to the sound of sports being played.
With more than 200,000 visitors expected, the result is the ultimate crowd-sourced remix. And it represents yet another hybrid in which lighting and interactivity combine to produce stunning results.
While still only the conceptual fodder of international design events, designs like these may one day be commonplace among European household lighting fixtures sold in retail stores - until then, be inspired by our innovative European-inspired designs!

Brent Turner is an architecture, design and art writer who adores elegantly simple distillations of complex design problems. You'll often catch him waxing poetic about how such creative problem solving is not only the essence of a successful art and design practice, but of science, engineering, and well, life in general. A California native, Brent was educated at U.C. San Diego where he was first exposed to clumsy yet endearingly avant-garde institutional art and architecture. In the years since, he has expanded his interest base to include all types of interior, graphic and industrial design. His best personal designs are made with Legos, and it's for this reason that Brent confines his own public creative work to wordsmithing. When he isn't writing, he hosts an art and design podcast called Beer & Tall Buildings.
Brent lives in the Silverlake neighborhood of Los Angeles with his cat Buster. If you can't reach him by phone or email, he's most likely on a mountaintop somewhere and promises to call you back as soon as he descends.
