Seeper has made castles disappear into thin air, created walls that ripple in time to music and frozen London’s Senate House into a solid block of ice.

When I edited this lighting special for Icon magazine, I got him to explain exactly how they do it. Also included: interviews with designers Rolf Sachs, Thierry Dreyfus and Arik Levy, and a very power and plug-hungry photoshoot of some beautiful and intriguing new products.
