Frank Gehry has invited long-time friend Daniel Buren to create an artwork that casts new light on the Fondation Louis Vuitton.

Following his recent installation on the rooftop of Le Corbusier’s Cité Radieuse in Marseilles, Observatory of Light, is an unmissable installation that features colourful shadows over the twelve sails, producing an ever-changing effect as the light pierces the impressive multicoloured glass structure.

It’s not the first time Buren has collaborated with Louis Vuitton; his “Damier signature style” inspired the Spring / Summer 2013 collection. Louis Vuitton has a long tradition of collaborating with contemporary artists including Richard Prince, Takashi Murakami and Yayoi Kusama.
