Not everyone owns a spacious house that has well lit windows for proper light and ventilation although we all dream of having one at a point in our lives. How about owning a house that can be lit with artificial windows? Yes, it has been made possible by a man named Philippe Malouin who has created a series of lamps or you can even call them artificial windows. These are based on the Tangram and have been inspired by plantation shutters called the Daylight.
So you can now have windows which don’t have to build into the walls but can be simply pasted onto a closed surface. You won’t have to mount anything as the Daylight’s shutters will be secured on a wall and will contain an artificial light source to light it up. The supposed window which has a number of individual slats in them is lined with LEDs that will replicate the colour temperature of daylight making you believe that they are actual windows and not some artificial lighting.
The light thus emitted from these windows will be reflected back from the wall on which this window has been placed. This will produce the impression of a real window. You can also adjust and manipulate the angle of the shutters so that you can adjust the light intensity. Daylight was selected for the W Hotels Designers of the Future Projects and was revealed at the Design Miami/Basel 2012. If you don’t know how prestigious this award is then let me tell you that the WDOF is an award which gives the budding designers of tomorrow a global platform to showcase their work. All such projects have a debut at Basel and from here travel to W Hotels around the world.
