Fake Window Sheds Light on Your Cubicle

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.

EL Window Shade by Makoto Hirhara for Mongoose

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).
