Would you like to brighten up your home with the warm tropical light or the bright colours of the northern sun?
Here is a solution that can turn any room into an environment where the sun always shines.
A group of researchers from the University of Insubria, Italy, has developed a lighting system that can mimic sunlight propagated through the atmosphere.
To create a highly realistic effect, the researchers used LED technology developing panels that mimic not only sunlight but also its reaction with the gases in the atmosphere, for a realistic effect.
The product we are talking about is named CoeLux and it just won top spot as Light Source Innovation of the Year at the 2014 Lux Awards.
HOW IT WORKS: The panel uses white LEDs arranged behind a glass polymer, coated with titanium dioxide nanoparticles. In this way it was possible to create the effect known as Rayleigh scattering, which allows you to perceive the classic division of colors, with blue sky and yellow sun.
However, if you are fond of unpredictable and frequent weather changes, you can set the LED so as to imitate any weather.
Designed as a design element, the panel can be used in various ways: to revalue properties and apartments with low light, to enhance the mood of the people or the climate of the workplace. Isn’t it beautiful?
