Design project by Leslie Nooteboom is a lamp that can project artificial natural lighting onto walls, created with high-rise apartment spaces in mind:
komorebi is sunlight filtering through leaves, creating a dance of light and shadows where filtered sunrays hit a surface. It is the reflections on pavements underneath centuries-old trees on a sunny day, and moving, framed lightboxes through windows of homes onto walls. However, these days buildings are taller than they have ever been, creating a place to live for as many people as possible on the tiniest piece of land possible. Homes become a place of isolation from the outside – windows are absent or so tiny that even the idea of nature disappears, and lighting has become so artificial that there is no sense of day, time or place anymore.
komorebi lets you curate natural lighting experiences indoors.
In a time where indoor sunlight is becoming more scarce, the need for technological nature is increasing. With an ever growing global population and urbanisation levels reaching huge rates, fewer living spaces are able to receive direct sunlight. There are attempts at solving this issue, however these are very static. Intensity and colour seem to be the only way in which their light is dynamic.
