Bright Blinds: Fakes a Window Where There’s None

The first apartment I ever had was a bit rundown and ran on the tiny side, but it was still the first place that I had all to myself, so I didn’t really care. But one thing that bugged me, though, was that I got one of those middle spaces and was stuck with a bedroom with no windows.

I wish these Bright Blinds were available for sale then, because I would’ve gotten one in the blink of an eye. My old room at my parents’ house was fitted with blinds, you see, so I was already sort of having another source of light other than the light on the ceiling.

First spotted back in 2007, and finally available for purchase, these blinds were designed by Makoto Hirahara. To give the illusion that the blinds are blocking light off from the outside, electroluminescent (EL) sheets have been fitted under each of the slats that light up with a twist of the plastic stick (that supposedly controls the angles on real blinds.)

The price is available upon request, if you’re interested.
