YaYaHo is the first low-voltage system consisting of tense wires and of many different luminous sculptural spotlights walking on the tightrope. It is a system of halogen lights which reflect and shine as directed, horizontally and in some cases vertically. The light formation can be put together in numerous ways, creating many different light sources to accomodate various spaces and create different atmospheres.
