06 Feb Dezeen | Kiki & Joost creates patterned solar panels for MyEnergySkin
Design duo Kiki & Joost has created a collection of solar panels for MyEnergySkin, a Dutch company that wants to make products attractive enough to cover building facades.
There are two solar roof tiles and six solar facade tiles, all inspired by textures from nature or the built environment.

For the roof tiles, Kiki & Joost chose to emulate copper and iron, with a mottled pattern and a reflective finish that they say glitters “jewel-like” in the light.
For the facade tiles, they looked to a mix of sources. One, titled Paint, appears to have been streaked by a paintbrush.
The collection includes a panel named Paint
Another, Rain, has an oxidised effect, while Tudor has a muddy brickwork pattern, and Leaves gives the impression that it is in the shadow of foliage.
