Inspired by Jazz, the 4th transformation explores the tension between improvisation and tradition, as well as the unique rhythm and architecture that defines this musical form. A non-traditional take on jazz, this Movement Elle Kunnos de Voss uses 9100ft of string to create different volumes throughout the space. This spatial rhythm throughout the room results in a visual cadence from the entrance all the way to the back that visually and spatially communicates the rhythm and contrast of Jazz. Amber tones of string hearken back to southern sunlight and remind guests of the birthplace of this unique American form of music.
The entryway welcomes guests with a taste of what’s to come with a collage of patterns and imagery that mix old photographs from New Orleans with abstract patterns that visually represent the tempo of jazz. Adding another “note” of reference, all the light fixtures are inspired by jazz line up instruments. Made from basic geometric shapes in bright colors, they are configured around the room at different heights.
