designboom recently published an article on 'cocoon', a modular living system by micasa LAB. the zurich-based studio has also developed the
'nebula 12', a lighting concept that uses meteorological information collected from metoff, to depict and simulate the weather conditions outside.
users can wake up to a flooding yellow light on a sunny day, or below a real cloud on that overcast winter morning. the cloud development involves
the use of liquid nitrogen, wi-fi, and high power vacuum suction. like a natural cloud, change in colour and brightness can be used as a variable source
of ambience any given situation - a threatening low pressure area is announced by a red cloud, while sunshine is depicted in yellow. in its standard mode,
'nebula 12' predicts the weather for the next 48 hours, and regardless of how dark the cloud is, it never brings rain... to the indoors anwyays.
