Discipline: Professional Concept

The “Light Metamorphosis” concept applies technology to diffuse natural light indoors so as to reconnect people with its uplifting effects. For example research into how hospital patients in beds positioned in natural light recover has resulted in a fiber-optic canopy to transport outside light to a “healing bed”. Other applications include a system to transform interiors in response to the atmospheric and lighting conditions outside; a “sense of time” table with its own subtle shadow effect, and a “room with a view” which uses fiber-optic conduits and light-diffusing crystals to channel dynamic lighting from outdoors into windowless spaces.
