After the basic collection (the Dot Collection) Studio Solarix introduces the Line collection in 2021. This collection of ceramic coloured Solar Design panels for the facade are designed by designer Eefiene Bolhuis with nature as a starting point. By looking at veins on leaves and the grain structure of wood, she started to apply textures to the panels by hand-drawn lines and colours. By preserving imperfections in the drawn lines, a natural pattern is created, which gives the facade a personal and natural look when you walk past it.
Within the collection, lines are applied in various ways and combined with colour. There are two directions: 1 where a hard line is visible and 1 direction where soft lines flow into each other. Furthermore, the lines can be applied horizontally, vertically or diagonally to panels, single or multiple layers to create a weaving effect. The Line collection offers endless possibilities for Studio Solarix to develop unique patterns for the facade.
Eefiene Bolhuis, head of design, talks about the design process and the development of the Line Collection
Inspired by nature
For this collection, we wanted to create a more material feeling of our designs, which reflected the ‘imperfection’ of nature that inspired us. Therefore, we looked at the veins of leaves and lines in wood. These repeat themselves, give depth and shape to the surface. The lines are never perfectly straight and are all unique and different.”
Hard and soft lines

Timeless designs with a personal and human touch
Studio Solarix develops innovative solar facade panels. We are at the forefront of the market to be the only one to develop collections ourselves. For this collection we wanted to give a more material feel to our designs that reflect the “imperfection” of nature that inspired us. Timeless designs with a personal and human feeling, like a skin for a building. The skin of a building should feel friendly and pleasant to stay in, look good to walk by, and show certain natural imperfections.
A pattern with integrated transparency in to the design to increase energy yields
We want to stay far away from plain boring black solar panels. By playing with lines and transparency we approached this in the Line collection differently. We did not hide the black of solar panels but integrated it as part of the colour palette into the design. Thereby, more energy yield for the facade is achieved.
The lines create colour nuances from up close and suggest fluid motion from far away
