The Sun Show is a bespoke design of innovative window blinds for the meeting room of the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science. 

The installation consists out of four woven, textile panels with pop-up patterns that open and close in a breathing rhythm, regulating the sunlight that shines into the space.


Collaborating with both craftsmanship and technology the design is highly refined and detailed: the woven textiles become transparent by working with monofilament yarns and the cutouts are fixed by a colourful swarm of embroidery. 

The shapes open and close themselves by a mechanical structure, triggered by a lightsensor.


Produced in collaboration with Textiellab, Tilburg and Agile, Nuenen
