“In the morining the sun slowly arises as mother nature’s sign for us to wake up. Our body gradually prepares for our daily activities. As the day comes to an end, and the sun sets, curtains are being closed while lights are switched on.”

“This product works autonomously with a light-sensor. During the day, mechanical flowers on a frame attached to a window are closed enabling sunlight to come in.

When sun sets, the flowers open and start to emit light. In this way, awareness for this important phenomenon will be brought back.

My self-set guidelines are based on the mathmatical perfection of nature. I wanted the flower to display nature’s growing motion.

The hexagonal shape enables different flowers to be linked together; fully covering a window. The flowers are made of nylon with the SLS-technique used in rapid manufacturing. The material is flexible and strong, without losing its delicate look”, the designer explains.
