The Photograph Gallery
Brooklyn-based mostly design home SO-IL was requested by 3M Architectural Markets to group up on challenge that explores 3M™ Dichroic Glass Finishes, an ethereal movie for glass surfaces that performs with mild by reflecting and creating shade shifts. They got here up with a sculptural, three-dimensional kite that radiates an iridescent shade spectrum.
3M scientists have been learning Blue Morpho butterfly wings in hopes of making a glass movie know-how that would produce the identical sort of shade-shifting impact. A shimmering metallic is seen on the wings because of layers of microscopic scales that seem to vary colour relying on how the sunshine hits them. Borrowing the identical idea, the builders mixed layers in an try and get an analogous outcome. The movie brings rainbows of colours that change and glimmer relying on the place they’re seen.
The kite was on show on the Wallpaper* Handmade exhibit in Milan this yr.
