Light Manipulation

1/1
Manipulating light
with minimal resources
(2014)

Architectural surfaces can be transformed with minimal resources by breaking white light into its colours and redirecting them to walls, ceilings or floors. Reusing old CDs can be a sustainable option to manipulate light and enhance architectural surfaces with rainbow colours. Similar effects can be achieved with a wise use of lenses or prisms. As they manipulate existing light, these techniques are a green solution that can be adopted to lower electricity use, carbon emissions and operating costs, potentially reinforcing the sustainability of brands.
