world’s first temperature controlled city to be built in dubai

find out all about the mall of the world here.

On it’s face this seems like a terrible idea. Maybe they are designing it in a way that won’t consume tremendous resources, but given the location, it seems like a giant greenhouse in a desert to me.

Luminescence by Hans Kotter

There’s something about composed luminescence that I find captivating. Light does move. It moves faster than we can see but on some level we know it’s in motion. A piece like this bottles that energy, that knowledge and makes us ponder it.

It’s also really badass.

Its been proven that warm red lighting inspires sleep. This look is inspired by sunset and could be a blend of oranges and yellows. Helping the patient relax and sleep at the end of the day.

Concept for exam room lighting. The idea here is that cool lighting helps us wake up. When a morning exam is to begin about 30 minutes prior the lights fade up initiating a wake up routine. When the nurse comes to check on the patient she activate the exam light which fades up over 5 full minutes. 

This way the patient wakes up gently and can prepare for examination without jarring lighting changes.
