Stretch Ceiling that Mimics Nature & Glows!

Wall-and-Ceiling-Glowing

I went to one Architecture exhibition recently and found an interesting concept for ceilings – Stretch ceiling that can mimic patterns (including natural scenes) and glow! The above photo shows the company exhibit there – notice how the patterns on the wall continue in the ceiling. Here’s the link that allows you to (virtually) create any ceiling pattern you want.ย 

I think they are targeting the corporate sector in cities, which has taken people far away from nature. Maybe it also adds to the glitz and style, for impressing their visiting international clients. Some ultra-rich families might buy it for their homes too.

I wonder if someone will recreate stars & the night sky in their air-conditioned bedroom ceiling – like theย planetarium.ย But they might as well climb one story higher and sleep below the real night sky! That reminds me how long it’s been since I slept on the terrace – this summer, I will be back ๐Ÿ™‚

I think, this only shows how much people yearn to connect (back) to nature. Even if it’s only an illusion. Why knows, the ‘real’ nature might as well be an illusion – A la Matrix ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

So, when was the last time you slept in the open-terrace or noticed the night sky full of stars?

This is a solar water heater from Honeywell. I saw one more from Bosch, displayed in the same expo. That explains why I went – to learn about sustainable building technologies. It was good to see products aimed at architects/builders frequently highlighting the sustainability factor, even if it’s only recyclable.

Also, with AAP forming the Government in Delhi, we are moving towards a better future or what? ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Last I saw the starry night sky was when the bus en-route to Bangalore halted at some place with no road lights in vicinity(4 days back). It has always been grand to look at the sky in such darkness. People around me also started looking up out of curiosity, as I was staring at the sky for around 5 min. ๐Ÿ˜€ :p

    1. I look at the night sky a few times, but I don’t see many stars. Maybe I am viewing it early (late-evening), and hence.

      I guess you did that to make people curious? ๐Ÿ˜›

  2. You may not like what I am going to write. Stretch ceiling and AAP are a fad. They both will not take off. I do not dislike AAP. I want to tell the reality. If AAP comes to Tamilnadu, then all those opposed to AAP will say these guys want to force Hindi on us because their party name is Aam Aadmi Party.

    I don’t want to recreate these things in my bedroom ceiling. There, all I want to do is sleep or do something interesting and not stare at the ceiling all night.

    1. You should visit the planetarium one of these days – the brilliant recreation of the night sky will make you want to sleep & stay right there. Try it ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Very interesting concept. We cannot predict what scientific inventions will come up in future. Even some years back who could think of marvels like skype, smart phones, and several other gadgets. We may have a make shift starry night in the comfort of our bedroom in future.

    1. I just hope all the new scientific inventions in the future will also take ‘sustainability’ component into account, in addition to whatever benefits they may provide. For example, as mentioned in their site, this stretch ceiling is biodegradable.

    1. That starry night design is my imagination – not sure if they have that. If they come across this post, they might want to include it, though ๐Ÿ™‚
