Mechanic Wall Panels Mimic Human Skin To Filter Sunlight [Pics]
Luxury spa's innovative design allows a customized amount of light to shine through.
Phoenix-based architecture firm, WorksBureau, is finalizing designs for a luxury spa area in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The so-called ‘Portal Spas’ are two crystalline structures that will feature kinetic metal ‘skins’ for the walls. The principle behind the architecture is inspired by how the human skin reacts to sunlight. The panels are constantly changing angles depending on the intensity of the sun.
