North Seattle, LED Company SolidApollo.com teams up with MIT by donating state of art LED Lighting Solutions used to illuminate the interior of futuristic feather-weight house. The free standing house designed by Nick Gelpi, is created by flexing two dimensions into three with the interior illuminated by flexible LED lighting strips.
- (1888PressRelease) September 23, 2011 - Seattle, WA - Solid Apollo provider of LED lighting solutions is happy to announce their involvement with MIT in the building of their futuristic feather-weight house. Solid Apollo a long time supporter of innovative design in the world of architecture and building has plenty of experience assisting companies with their lighting needs.
"We are big believers in pushing the boundaries in the world of architecture and lighting solutions." Manuel Barquin President of Solid Apollo said. "We have been working with companies for years offering them cutting edge LED lighting solutions. Here was a great opportunity to put our money where our mouth is by donating the LED Strip Lights used in the feather-weight house built by MIT."
MIT architect Nick Gelpi has designed a freestanding pavilion, created by flexing two dimensions into three. The house is created by cutting patterns into flat sheets of plywood which when "pushed" into position similar to old fashion pop up books, is transformed into a three dimensional house complete with skylights, columns, buttresses, windows and vents.
Once the house is raised the lightweight interior walls will be illuminated by attaching flexible LED Light Strips onto the interior of each sheet of plywood.
The final structure which reminds one of an open ended Quonset hut is neither bullet proof nor expensive to build, instead it is a demonstration of what can be done with a simple piece of plywood and well thought out planning. "We're glad to have been chosen to play a minor role in this exciting project" states Barquin.
