Orproject wins GOOD DESIGN Award — London, UK / Beijing, China / New Delhi, India
Orproject's "Or2" has been awarded this year’s GOOD DESIGN Award by the Chicago Athenaeum. Or2 is a single surface roof structure which reacts to sunlight. When in the shade, the segments of Or2 are translucent white. However when hit by sunlight they become coloured, flooding the space below with different hues of light. During the day Or2 becomes a shading device passively controlling the space below it. At night Or2 transforms into an enormous chandelier, disseminating light which has been collected by integrated photovoltaic cells during the day into the surrounding areas.
