The famous art and design Studio Drift in Amsterdam managed to combine technology with aesthetics. The designers of the studio had created beautiful silken ceiling lamps. The Shylights work by mimicking the circadian rhythms of the flowers by opening and closing in a hypnotizing dance.The flowers open and close their petals and leaves as a response to the light or darkness. That is the organic movement that the Shylights try to present. The operation is quite simple, when activated the cocoon of the flower drops to 9 m down and inflates a silken skirt in the frame of the lamp thus revealing its beauty. The lamps then rise and fall in a special choreography. The Shylights can be seen at a permanent exhibit at Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.
