Photoreactive Sun Canopy

Craft & Design


This installation titled Project OR by architect Christoph Klemmt and designers Ran Ankori, Francesco Brenta, Maya Carni, Laura Micalizzi and Elisa Oddone is made of a photoreactive material that lights up green and blue when exposed to sunlight. It also casts shadows on the walls and makes an engaging space in an Italian courtyard on Milan’s Via Borgospesso as part of the 2008 Milan Furniture Fair. I’d like to commission him for a sun porch. Via Inhabitiat.
