Light curtain

An autonomous object, the project by Clémentine Chambon is a curtain that protects against daylight at the same time as it captures it to restore it at night. Made of optical fibres woven with cotton threads, it propagates light from LEDs arranged on the top of the curtain. The supply is provided via the rail, used as an electric rail whose box contains a transformer. The curtain is switched on by a light intensity sensor located on the rail so that it only comes on when daylight fades.In a second phase of the development of the project, the energy will be provided by sun captors, a valuable initiative in terms of energy savings.With the light curtain, Clémentine Chambon gives us the possibility of moving from night to day in a magic translation of lights
