Giant scales with LED lights, Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris

The scales hang from the ceiling and have been decorated with LED lights which are randomly placed in the structure. This ensures in the scales appearing as very artistic chandeliers. 

Why are composites used here?

Freedom of geometry
Double curved shapes are easily produced in composite materials at almost no extra cost. For production of limited series the relatively low moulding costs are an additional benefit.

Aesthetics
Slender constructions and seamless façades are examples of aesthetics-driven design. These types of structures are impossible to construct with traditional materials.
