Solarix onderdeel van de tentoonstelling Switch Light (bericht 2017)
Tijdens de Dutch Design Week in 2017 heeft Solarix haar eerste prototypes laten zien op het Stadhuisplein in Eindhoven. Als onderdeel van de tentoonstelling ‘Switch Light’, worden verschillende innovatieve en opvallende ideeen getoond, waaronder Solarix. Met circa 335.000 bezoekers en een steeds internationaler publiek, wordt hier een podium voor de producten geboden.
Today the innovative, energy-producing design façade of Dutch team Studio Solarix has been launched at the Kuijpers building in the Eindhoven region. The sustainable design demonstrates a seamless blend of solar energy, interactivity and design. This accomplishment is the result of an intense cooperation between Studio Solarix, Kuijpers, Kameleon Solar and Sorba. This project was made possible thanks to support from SPARK Campus and the city of Helmond.
Helmond marks the first application of the start-up’s integrated concept on this scale. The next project, the façade of a new, healthy work environment Pharos in Hoofddorp, will follow next year. Studio Solarix is a collaboration of artist and designer Reinier Bosch and architect Marloes van Heteren, whose ambition is to upscale the principle of ‘solar design’ worldwide. Both founders received a Dutch Design Award for the Solarix design to make buildings more sustainable, connective and appealing.
Aukje Kuijpers, CEO of Kuijpers and 2018 Dutch Businesswoman of the Year, immediately saw the potential of Solarix and adopted their concept as launching customer. Kuijpers is a national service partner, engineer and designer of technical solutions for buildings. Their portfolio consists of museums such as the Rijksmuseum and Hermitage in Amsterdam, theme park the Efteling and the Elisabeth Hospital in Eindhoven.
The Solarix concept, a high-design solar tile, enables energy production on the façade whilst also enhancing the identity and appearance of the building as a whole. This combination answers the challenges of the energy transition with a practical, yet smart and beautiful approach and won Studio Solarix the 2016 Solar Challenge during the Dutch Design Week. Solarix’s practical and elegant essence is precisely what makes Dutch design unique in the world.
