Abstract (en)

A structure and method for three-dimensional lighting using light active technology. The structure has one or more sheets of light active material, with each sheet having lighting elements. The structure additionally has one or more folding elements along which the sheets of light active material are foldable to create a three-dimensional lighting structure having a center element located at a back side of the three- dimensional lighting structure. A power supply element can then be used to provide power to the lighting elements. A fastening element fastens together the sheets of light active material at fastening points to retain the three-dimensional lighting structure created by folding the one or more sheets of light active material. The three-dimensional lighting structure may be attached to a surface by attaching the center element directly to the surface or by attaching the center element to a substantially rigid backing that attaches to the surface.
