Changing colors

Tim van Cromvoirt doesn’t have a background in biology, but the Dutch designer has spent the past few years breathing new life into inanimate home decor. Thermophores are the result of research–wall art that looks like a coral reef, and reacts to heat by changing color. As sunlight warms these bio-inspired works of art, their hues subtly shift, Hypercolor-style.
