Abstract [en]

Daylight as an intriguing atmospheric phenomenon is put within high and constantly rising focus by the field of architecture, art and design to inspire and trigger design solutions for energy-efficient and human-friendly environments. Sunny interaction is an exploration of an active relationship between sunlight and the field of textile design within weaving. Considering the aspect of changeability as a desired quality, sunlight is incorporated into the design process and its outcome as a valuable design variable to explore the possibilities in shifting color and pattern expression. The aim of the project is to explore how color and pattern changeability can be activated in woven textiles with spatial structures while being exposed to the flow of the sunlight during the day to create engaging public spaces. The project was based on the combination of industrial weaving and hands-on folding techniques. The leading element of exploration was the concept of gradation that was applied as a method of working with color, transparency, weave and spatial pattern. This approach enhanced the search for increased surface diversity in terms of the color perception and light transmission. As an outcome of this project three double-sided woven pieces were designed with varying pattern scale, amount of light transmission and color interaction. The collection expands the possibilities of creating light responsive textiles for public spaces with further potential to adjust light settings and atmosphere in interiors and bring along sustainable benefits of temperature and mood controlling abilites. The sustainability aspect is also embraced by the concept of biophilic design by putting high focus on the advantages of utilizing the natural light in the design process. As an outcome, having an active interaction with natural light aims towards enriching monotonous office spaces through a visual contact with this changeable installation. In this context the changeability of color and surface can enrich the space, adding an element of variety and complexity as an important factor that influences human mental health and well-being.
