“The use of artificial light has led to a pollution of the interior with light waves followed by negative consequences for the human body. Its exposure to blue light results in a melatonin suppression, which disrupts our circadian rhythm and causes i.e. sleeping disorders.
To counter this development we propose filters made of sugar — a soon overproduced commodity in the Netherlands — in a range of orange shades that are based on the natural process of caramelization. Sugar, as a normally unhealthy matter hereby transforms into an organic protector of the human body.” (Federica Dellisanti & Tinka Jongerius, 2015)
