Despite the fact that Lighttex is a very simple material, we were able to create a number of usages out of it such as defining the space in addition to its normal function, which has to do with daylight. So we took it another step forward, if you wish, creating an architectural element out of it, in addition to it becoming a lighting support
within an architectural space.
