VELUX: Will Illuminate Your Place Naturally In Style

Do you think it is possible to illuminate your room elegantly in a natural way? With the constant call for battling global warming and with the artistic mind every designer has today, the answer for that question is now a Yes. One great example is the VELUX, an elegant lighting designed that will illuminate your room with natural daylight. Thus, it does not use any electricity to illuminate your room. Then how does it work? Designed by Lovergrove, the VELUX sun tunnel uses sunlight to produce light. On a cloudy day, the VELUX can generate light as much as a traditional 60w electric bulb, so we can expect more on a bright sunny day. However, my question is, how was its performance at night? It is definitely a sustainable and elegant lighting system during the day. However, I wish that it could produce warm and elegant illumination during nighttime as well. Received a design award including the Red Dot Design Award, the elegant design of the VELUX made it a perfect addition to your interior design.

A system of bus waiting booth designed for Ningbo South Business District, China by a Shanghai-based design agency Yang-Design.

The system is divided into three units, so that modular can be reduced or increased according to the size of each booth. Due to the sustainable modular design, maintenance is reduced. The two rising benches provide temporary pause for some users and spare enough standing space for many others. Between the benches are a city information center, an advertisement billboard and a bus schedule screen. Solar battery panels are installed on top of the booth to provide energy.

All the components speak the same design language of simplicity. The user-friendly details are designed with soft and fluid curves. Its silver and dark grey color combination also blends in the business district.
