Wave / Window blind


A normal square room is practical but at the same time limited. The blind “wave” gives movement and lighting softness to the line that constitutes and influence the impression of the whole room.

It create something playful but still retain the function, adjust the sunlight and cut off vision from outside from inside.

The slats show the lighted side and shadowed side in the same time and the strong contrast makes illusional moiré effect constantly.
Consecutive wavy shapes bring the three-dimensional movement that changes when they turn.
It gives magical expression to the people from different standing position.
