Crystal Mesh

Crystal Mesh2

Crystal Mesh is a new media facade consisting of 3000 modules of deep drawn polycarbonate, with 1900 of them containing a regular matrix of compact fluorescent light tubes that allow ‘active patches’ to exist on tessellated exterior pattern. This enforces “medianess” as an ingredient of this architecture.  When lit up, each crystal in the mesh can act as one object or its subpixels can be controlled to create a movement of light across the surface.

Be sure to check out the video on the site, it is nothing short of mesmerizing!
