Fabric light-control panels

When used as a window and skylight covering, the polyester-based Lighttex panel blocks and redistributes direct sunlight more effectively than vertical or horizontal blinds and creates diffused interior daylight with improved uniformity.

Lighttex walls and space partitions enable daylight penetration while providing a view for occupants in an interior space. At an angle, the wall appears opaque, creating a sense of privacy, and yet when viewing the material directly it becomes transparent, creating a sense of openness and a view outside.

Lighttex is an integration of architecture and space, enabling architects to design flat and curved ceilings that appear as a luminous floating element in the space while providing soft light distribution. Various dramatic lighting effects can be achieved depending on the placement and type of light fixtures, creating a broad palette of solutions with simple variables.
