Bright Blind

While it’s not being prescribed as a cure for seasonal affective disorder just yet, the Bright Blind is sure to lighten one’s spirit in dark, sad abodes and office spaces worldwide. Made of electroluminescent (EL) sheets, Makoto Hirahara’s Bright Blind simulates a window where none exists. The artificial blind functions in exactly the way you might guess; turn the plastic stick and control the brightness!

Dimensions are 39.25″H x 23.5″W x 1.25″D – just about the right size for an office window.  So all you IT guys, hermits, FNGs, and middle cube dwellers – let a little light in.  It won’t hurt, we promise!

Pricing is available upon request from the site, and custom sizes are available as well.
