The Monsoon Club at the Kennedy Center, Washington, D.C. features a large-scale, undulating, illuminated “carpet” hanging from the ceiling. Inspired by the beautiful light during torrential monsoon rains, the lighting and installation do a romantic dance. Its pattern is composed of vertically hung strings, the lengths of which determine the steepness and shape of the undulations. The illumination of this carpet creates fantastic effects when the vertical strings calculatedly interrupt light beams to cast a flood of variegated shadows on the floor.
