London Voyage


Voyage is a simple, but appealing project created by partners in the design firm Aether & Hemera of Newcastle at London’s trendy Canary Wharf. Artists Gloria Ronchi and claudio Benghi launched a vivid, tiny fleet of 300 polypropylene boats illuminated by colorful LED lights.



The creators hope that their vision will “provoke memories, explore aesthetics, and elicit feelings of connective human experience.”
