a modular, visual facade system that is able to simulate a pixel-based hull for any building or wall surface. like a dynamic membrane, it allows a building to express, communicate & interact with its environment. the Flare system consists of several tiltable metal flake bodies supplemented by individually controllable pneumatic cylinders. each stainless steel flake reflects the bright sky or sunlight when in vertical stand-by position. when the flake is tilted downwards pneumatic piston, its face is shaded from the sky light & appears as a dark pixel.
