Daylight improves our well-being both physically and psychologically. Sunlight stimulates the production of serotonin in our brain, providing energy and relieving pain in some cases, makes us feel rested and promoting well-being. Yet many people live in spaces devoid of natural light.
With Orbit, I intend to remedy this situation. Orbit is a product that reflects and imitates natural light in its intensity, saturation and movements in the apartments. The concept is to give people the light, the emotions and memories connected to it and giving them the opportunity to experience once more the sensations they had previously experienced thanks to the light.
