Makoto Hirahara's Bright Blind

Simulate a window where none exists. The Bright Blind, designed by Makoto Hirahara, is made of a plain window blind over a lighting fixture. Simply turn the blinds, and filter the light as needed, just like you'd do with a window...

Maxwell has suggested this concept himself with his backlit, curtained closet. Regina showed a backlit backsplash in her own home that also tries to bring daylight simulation inside. Looks like many of us would like a little more daylight inside our apartments. We think Hirahara's design is a very successful one at creating this illusion.
