Germans have invented system which will completely change modern cities

May 5th, 2008

At art and NEXT technologies exhibition in Denmark the dynamic facade of a building, developed by Germans, has been represented. This invention is capable to change completely appearance of mega cities all over the world.
Skyscrapers, which walls are made entirely of the glass, abuse many for plainness of shape, but they are capable “to change” appearance depending on color of the sky.
Recently the following logic step in city buildings facades’ evolution has been made. Various parts of facade differently reflect the sky, surrounding buildings, ground and asphalt. These reflections live their life, constantly varying. On a wall of building light and dark strips, waves, circles run – “patch of light-facade” (flare facade) is capable to provide such enchantling show.
This facade was developed by Berlin Company WHITEvoid interactive art and design. It calls the system “kinetic membrane”.
Such facade consists of set of blocks of the complex form, each of which is a mirror from the polished steel. Intricate corners and sides of one such plate allow grouping the “screen” from them, which is capable to close a facade of any form.
Change of “pixels” in this “screen” is reached by very simple image. Each mirror block is established on axis and can deviate on a small corner by means of pneumatic driver.
When the surface of “pixel” is focused vertically, it reflects the bright sky for the ground observer. If pneumocylinders will incline the steel block downwards – it will already reflect the ground. And light and dark points on “screen” will turn out.

Multilevel illumination (Part 2)

March 14th, 2008

In working zone unusual decisions are not required. Here light should be uniform and disseminated: it should be general fixture, not giving shadows, and additional lamp at a workplace with an adjustable light stream on a flexible bar or hinges.
According to fashionable tendencies bedroom should have two light centers: at a bed and near the wardrobe. And it is important, that from each party of bed there was a separate fixture: the muffled, matte lamp on night little table or wall sconce above the bed. If it is childrenテ「竄ャ邃「s room with two beds “night lamp” also should be applied on each of them. The most important here is that illumination was sufficient for reading. And for a case the built in dot fixtures will ideally approach.
Dining table is a special place. Its illumination should be soft and cozy. The unusual aura above a table is created with pendant fixtures. Well, if you want a holiday, place on a candle on the table. It is the best way to create the atmosphere of mystery and celebration.テつ
It is boring to follow all necessary rules. From original novelties – “window” with artificial illumination in ceiling, playing a role of a luster is offered. In this case it is necessary to dot fixtures, which form a shone contour in the form of oval are placed on the access-ceiling. It looks very unusual and effective. Such “hole” in ceiling visually raises it and speaks about not ordinary taste of the owner.

Selection of color for various functional zones
In a children’s room pertinent light, warm and moderately bright tone is recommended. But if your child is active, we recommend you to add blue and green color. And red in a nursery is undesirable. It is useful to update children’s room interior even time in two-three years, in fact the child grows and develops. It is possible to change and color scale.
Both traditional white and various shades of blue are highly recommended for bathroom. Silvery color has become very popular today. If the bathroom is rather spacious and light, it is possible to make emerald or cowberry as primary color.
The kitchen and dining room allow using both bright warm tones. And for noble calmness – you may choose various shades of green or colors of a natural tree. If you aspire to a full transparency, it is possible to make white kitchen.
Bedroom – is the empire of soft tones. If you dream of a meeting with the partner you will enjoy bedroom in peach or light pink tones. In any case you should avoid registration of great volumes of red, bright yellow and bright orange (differently it will be difficult to fall asleep) and black. Dark blue, dark-violet and dark brown is also very dark for bedroom. We also recommend you to avoid grey (in order to prevent depression).
