Flare_Webhead_L.htmlHot on the heels of the zero-enegry GreenPix media wall, comes Flare – a more analog solution to pixelated building walls. Flare is a ‘kinetic ambient reflection membrane' that allows a building to express, communicate and interact with its environment.

The FLARE system consists of a number of tilt-able metal flake bodies supplemented by individually controllable pneumatic cylinders. Each metal flake reflects the bright sky or sunlight when in vertical standby position. When the flake is tilted downwards by a computer controlled pneumatic piston, its face is shaded from the sky light and this way appears as a dark pixel.By reflecting ambient or direct sunlight, the individual flakes of the FLARE system act like pixels formed by natural light.
