As an international metropolis with growing influence, Beijing is well known for its perfect blend of fashion, culture and art. Beijing apm is located along Wangfujing Street, with a history of more than 100 years. As the first one-stop shopping mall in and around Wangfujing, Beijing apm quickly rose to become the primary shopping destination for young and fashionistas.

Amigo & Amigo has been expanding its presence around the world for seven years, with its works becoming frequent sights at international expos across Asia, Europe, the US and the Middle East. Inspired by the Chinese idiom “break out of the cocoon, and turn into butterfly”, the creative concept behind Cocoon conveys the idea that transformation is a tough process, and the power to complete a transformation can only come from inner strength.

Amigo & Amigo’s first China show is coming soon. Beijing apm joined hands with Amigo & Amigo to bring the creative lighting installation “Cocoon” to China, in an effort to create a unique sensory space within the urban environment, giving visitors an opportunity to explore Beijing from a new perspective, examine themselves and heed their inner voice, ultimately helping visitors know their inner self and give themselves a feeling of satisfaction both physically and emotionally.

The Cocoon, an 8.8-meter high tailor-made installation in harmony with the general style and motif of Beijing apm, is a floating work of art consisting of a 15,000-meter long rope to which 2,020 lightbulbs have been affixed in celebration of the upcoming year 2020.

The most unique charm of Cocoon lies in its ability to connect with the experiencer. When you enter the Cocoon, touch the sensor and the device immediately responds to your heart rate by changing the flickering frequency of the light and the rhythm of the music so that you can see your heartbeat. You can sit, lie, and listen to a symphony of heartbeats from friends, family, and strangers.

Relax, recline, and recharge yourself inside the safety and energy of this beautifully woven form. Take your time to absorb the living, animated pulses flowing up and around you in the heart of the Cocoon. When you are ready, emerge transformed. The Cocoon is a device that helps all of us reconnect with other people and grow stronger. We are not alone. We can change and reinvent ourselves together in the Cocoon.

Exhibition Period: December 7, 2019 to February 14, 2020

Venue: Atrium, 1/F, Beijing apm

The futuristic lighting exhibition “Touch My Heart” will start on December 7, 2019 and run until February 14, 2020. Amigo & Amigo director Simone Chua said: “I’m truly looking forward to the interactions between the Cocoon and Chinese visitors. Cocoon has been inspired by Eastern culture, and it will debut in Beijing. It’s amazing.”
