These late night shots are by Sevcan Yardim, one of the fresh ID graduates from the METU (Middle East Technical University) in Ankara. In cooperation with the companies Arlight and Artful she developed the "Bamboo Light", a sustainable lighting concept.
After researching parks, gardens and the lining of plans she decided to integrate the lighting within its surroundings through working with bamboo. Sevcan notes that bamboo has a very pure, smooth, and flowing form which allowed her to create a modular concept for various lighting configurations. She stresses the importance of resource efficiency and powers this low-impact material with LED lighting for low energy use.
Apart from the Bamboo Light you probably won't find a lot of natural bamboo growing in Turkey but that might just be the surprise effect it needs to get noticed.
