This light blooms like a flower

These Shylights are amazing. Kinetic ceiling lights that resemble blooming flowers, unfurling parachutes, descending ghosts.

The concept is based on nyctinasty, the process by which flowers open and close due to light or temperature changes.

“We wanted to find this exact moment, where the difference is in an object, when it is dead or when it starts to become alive.”
