In the Film Archives, built within an existing unit in the Madrid Matadero, some spaces stand out for their use of baskets of light. These are made from lengths of steel pipe, bent to fit in geometrically and joined using conventional industrial plastic hosepipes.
The light basket in the archive envelopes a stair case, filters and channels the light and is a lamp, made from orange-coloured hosepipe. The cinema light baskets are in black in tone. In the main cinema room, the orange background makes the basket lighting float in the air before screenings start. Afterwards, the background disappears and only a black area remains. In the small cinema a curved bread trough floats above the wooden space.
