Hexi - responsive wall from Thibaut Sld on Vimeo.

Made of 60 identical components, Hexi is a wall coverage created by Thibaut Sld that responds to movement thanks to an embedded camera and a smart fixture.

The honeycomb-shaped components are made of  vacuum casted aluminium and PVC and are fixed on the wall with a fixture that allows them to move and mirror the user's movements and appearing to be floating over the wall.

The surprise element is becoming more popular among designers and artists, who are adding unpredictability to day to day products. Homebuildlife subscribers can read more about this trend here.
