Fake Window Sheds Light on Your Cubicle

by


For those of us working in offices with no exterior windows, we’re always looking for ways to bring a little light into our lives. You could grab one of those outdoor scene rotators I showed you the other day, but if you’d like something a little more subtle, check this out.

The Bright Blind comes from the minds of designers Makoto Hirahara and Hisakazu Nabeshima (for Japanese design collective Studio Mongoose). It’s a window shade that hangs on your wall and is backlit by electroluminescent sheets to provide simulated daylight in even the darkest of offices. Just like a real window shade, brightness is adjusted by twirling the plastic shade control.

The shade is currently just a hand-built prototype, so I’m hoping they decide to produce these for purchase soon. Head on over to the GNR8 Pipeline site for more information (and a ton of other cool design concepts).

    Hello! I watched this video about the fake window sheds light , and i would like more informations. I live in Brazil and i wanna know how much it costs and how can i get it?! Thanks!

    Should be possible to build one of these. Is there a supplier in NA that sells electroluminiecent sheets large enough for such an application? I’m thinking 2 foot x 3 foot would be the smallest you’d want for a fake window.

    I LOVE IT!!!!! I need one now. It is exactly what I am looking for.

    no more dark room again…

    Where can we buy this? This is a great idea.

  10. Toby says:

    Electroluminescent sheets seems expensive. I’m going to build a couple using LEDs and an opaque sheet of plastic.

    There is a great product I picked up called a WindowSane its found at http://www.WindowSane.com it really makes it feel like your looking out a window. This one would work grat if I worked in the dark – but in a well lit office – this won’t do.
