Front design, light-sensitive wallpaper [1]

The all-female Front [2] design quartet never misses an opportunity to redefine the boundaries of the possible. Their portfolio contains a vast collection of staged interactions between science, technology and nature.



This light-sensitive wallpaper responds to UV radiation from the sun, displaying a morphing pattern created by shadows from ordinary objects (although the patterns here look more like unidentified flying objects to me…). Leave the techno-genius to the designers; you just paper the walls, open the curtains, and watch the surfaces transform throughout the day. [Presently in prototype.]
