Blind Light: Faux Wall-Hung Daylight via LED Window Blinds


Not enough windows in your downtown shoe-box-sized apartment or favorite basement work space? No worries – we have just the thing: fake-window blinds that turn up the light with a twist, just like the real deal.

Suspend it at any height you like, attach it, turn it on and let it transform dark rooms into nearly-daylit areas even if you have a night job. The catch? It is not being mass-produced yet, and costs a few (ouch) thousand dollars to have custom-made (might be a good idea to build your own version instead).

“While it’s not being prescribed as a cure for seasonal affective disorder just yet, the Bright Blind is sure to lighten one’s spirit in dark, sad abodes and office spaces worldwide. Made of electroluminescent (EL) sheets, Makoto Hirahara’s Bright Blind simulates a window where none exists. The artificial blind functions in exactly the way you might guess; turn the plastic stick and control the brightness!”
