komorebi lets you curate 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 heights unseen before, 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 changing over time.

komorebi is programmable, this means that it can change shape, location and interact with its environment. The code-based nature of the light allows for a generative aspect. This serendipity is an important aspect of the technology, which brings it closer to a natural experience.
