Light丨 There are two modes of the facade. When it’s close, the geometry brings the indirect natural light into the interior while keeping the interior temperature low from the sun and provides privacy for occupants. When it’s open, it allows the occupants to enjoy the outdoor views and having the calming shadow patterns inside.

The partition can be applied on walls vertically and on ceilling horizontally, or be used as architectural facade. Motors and the light sensor will control the transformation of partition in order to control the amount of shadow in the interior.
