These lights take flexibility to a new level.
Artemide came to MCX looking to create an interactive light structure that allows users to customize the length, diffusion, and flexibility of the light to adapt to any space.
Material ConneXion sourced and introduced Artemide to TEF Braids, a patterning technology intended for use on apparel, that expands and contracts without the use of elasticized fibers.
The Material Solution
The Turn Around series, designed by Carlotta de Bevilacqua, embodies the idea of freedom, flexibility, and sustainability by creating a lighting solution based on a small track that can be integrated into plasterboard without interfering with the structural warping.
During installation, the user can manipulate the system into different shapes and lengths to fit their space.
We were looking to create an interaction between
users and light and we found a material and process
that represents our idea perfectly.
