Coelux Artificial Skylight

This is just brilliant, Coelux is an Italian company that make artificial windows and skylights that mimic the true effect of natural sunlight and the sky, you wonīt believe it isnīt real!  Designed for gloomy interior spaces, the high-tech light system uses Nanotechnology, and not only mimics the color temperature, it mimics the quality of daylight, it looks so real even a camera will be tricked. The creator’s claim the system is so effective that it tricks unknowing individuals into thinking they are looking up an actual hole in the ceiling, and at the actual sun. The entire system is incorporated into an elaborate false ceiling, you can choose from a wall mounted window that produces a warm, grazing light, or a skylight which presents a 45 degree light designed to offer a balance of light and shadow. It recreates the experience of sun and sky and brings the outside world inside. Check out below some more photos of interior spaces illuminated by this faux sunlight, or watch the video for a better explanation on how the innovative system works.
