The Material Gap is a series of discussions on how to bridge the gap between material research and design/architecture. This year’s The Material Gap will highlight new conceptual avenues for the medium light far beyond its capacity to shine on us.
New light transmitting materials are on the verge to transform our idea of what light can do for us within design/architecture and the built environment. There are many benefits in terms of sustainability. But these light systems are not only about transmitting light to reflect upon us or our objects. It is also about how they can carry ideas, sense desires and even have an impact on our well being.
