Floris / modular light shield


People more often work and live in artificial lighted rooms which have effects on their wellbeing and their creativity. This concept was designed to integrate the natural light into the room but also to protect people of glare & heatexpansion. Through its modularity this lightshield can be used on big or even oversized windows. It is a new interpretatiothan of what is common in this field. It interacts with the occupant in a special way. Its modules are equipped with solarcells which produce, store & utilize the energy they gain. Light sensors regulate the panels & the light self-sufficient but access can be made by a remote-control as well.
