Details: Created for the conference room of the Fogo Island Inn, on a tiny Canadian island close to the Polar Circle, when the lights are off for a presentation, the fabrics glow with a soft light.

When on, the glow in the dark yarn of the fabric loads up. A new technique was invented to create the very fluent transitions between delicate gradients in the cotton fabric.

"In the darkness the woven pattern seems to float in space, producing a realistic impression of the famed Northern Lights." says Kabel.
