The goal of the project was the creation of a responsive surface inspired by the theme of origami; in fact surfaces, which through the action of actuators instructed by an Arduino, can move using the creases made on them. The study of the project has focused primarily on the light and her diffusion through ambient, that can influences the mood and productivity of the peoples living. It is a fact that variations of light can negatively affect mood and cognitive function: for example, the small day length during winter, especially in Northern European countries, can lead to depressive syndromes. Experimentally study also occurred that is more profitable studying in daylight conditions than studying at night to light of lamps. The development of the form aims to create a filter that can make the most comfortable conditions and at the same time avoiding sudden changes in brightness. The project is supported by light-sensitive sensors that can detect quality, quantity and incidence of light. The facility will feature a frame that will host four specular modules, which will perform a synchronous motion, closing by two opposite corners toward the diagonal, through the development of four folds, enhance a wider range of movement and control than the two folds envisaged in principle. The kinematic mechanism involves the use of a single central motor with the help of four different pulleys and belts placed strategically along the support, might boosts the closure of modules. Finally, to facilitate the reopening of the modules, is suggested the use of a memory foam material.
