Innermost lights Mise en Abyme


Innermost are very excited to start off the festive season collaborating with Laetitia de Allegri and Matteo Fogale as they re-purpose their Mise-en-abyme installation for the Oxo Tower Wharf on London’s Southbank. Following their installation at the V&A during the London Design Festival 2015, the Oxo Tower offers a new contrasting outdoor location. The structure will be illuminated by Innermost’s new flexible linear LED strip to add a new dimension to the already amazing sculpture and bring the installation to life on the cold winter nights.

Fascinated by the discovery of one-point perspective during the Renaissance period, the duo have created a landscape of overlapping semi-transparent shapes that plays with the viewers sense of perspective. The title of the work is a French term that literally translates as “placed into abyss”, and refers to the experience of walking through the installation. A colourful and immersive ‘landscape’ that creates an illusion of exaggerated depth.

CabLED is a flexible linear LED strip allows for a diverse range of applications for indoor as well as outdoor use, making it perfect for this project. The tight installation schedule was also another reason for choosing CabLED as with its ‘clipping simple’ assembly the bespoke lighting kit did not hold up the rest of the build. Innermost were able to pre-wire and test everything off site. For more details on CabLED visit

Why not come and see the sculpture for yourself during Oxo Tower’s late opening evening on December 1st – you might even find a hot mulled wine on offer!
