Textile objects with architectural qualities to distribute light more evenly through space.
6 cones, 1 carpet; textile objects with architectural qualities to distributes light more evenly through space.
After researching (artificial)light and the influence of daylight in the working environment I developed Daylit, a series of textile objects that distribute light more evenly through space. They consist of a monolayer of microscopically pieces of glass and are treated by hand with transparent ink to emphasise the retro-reflexive quality. Because of its rhythmic texture, the product will look unique from every angle, allowing the onlooker to bathe in a glow quite like sunlight.

Color reflectivity is valuable not only architecturally and aesthetically but also in terms of performance. The higher the reflectivity of a space the more evenly light is distributed trough it. Reflectivity apertures can improve the performance of a building’s system and also increases the occupants’ sense of well-being.
