” In our time, light has turned into a mere quantitative matter and the window has lost is significance as a mediator between two worlds, between enclosed and open, interiority and exteriority, private and public, shadow and light.” ­

DYNAMIC REVERSIBLE COLOR CHANGING PATTERNS AND COLORS ON TEXTILE.

C H R O M O R P H ­

Using the natural energy of the sun, the placement and common usage of Velux window blinds, our idea is to take advantage of the heat, temperature, and sunlight the blinds receive throughout the day.

By combining color changing ink and silkscreen ink, the blinds change color and pattern, giving the room a varied array of moods and visual experiences according to the time of day and current weather. This concept has infinite possibilities, due to its mix and match nature ( pattern vs color ). With the idea of light filtering through into color, we re­-conceptualize the age old tradition of vitralism, with dynamic geometric, op-art inspired patterns and introduce this ready made experience to brighten your everyday modern home.
