In science a holon is something that is simutaneously a whole and a part. This looks like a brainteaser, but it is applicable much more frequently than you would imagine. Think for example of the cells that together make up you body, or of atoms that exist on their own, but also make up a molecule. HOLON Light, created by the designers Michiel Martens and Jetske Visser, also consists of various parts that form one whole. HOLON Light will give you as a spectator an unforgettable experience: a swarm of spinning, hypnotising light spheres is formed directly above the water. They become more fluorescent as they turn and seem to fuse the loose strips.
