In our earlier explorations in using the silk cocoon to form an “atomised” light diffuser, we found that light was refracted by the material at different angles, so producing subtly different colors, and levels of luminosity.
The Globette-EV design was developed out of these earlier researches, but here, each silk cocoon element is fixed and acts as an open light funnel conducting light from the light source to the outside, so that a highly regulated cellular world is created.
