VELUX Sun Tunnel by Lovegrove: A Solar Powered Chandelier

There's no denying the wonders that a little natural light can bring into a home. But due to tight spaces, strange layouts or close neighbors many of us are stuck with artificial light. Day lighting company, VELUX, recently set out so solve this problem with their new product, the Lovegrove Chandelier, which can be installed anywhere and is powered by the sun.

Created by award-winning industrial designer Ross Lovegrove, the chandelier is the company's more creative alternative to the standard sun tunnel. The fixture can be installed in any space that needs natural light and has room above to connect the tunnel from roof to ceiling.

The tunnel reflects light from the exterior down to the light fixture, which softly distributes natural light throughout the room. The chandelier's light intensity and angle is adjustable, and according to VELUX generates as much light as a traditional 60W bulb — all without any electricity. If you already have a standard VELUX sun tunnel in your home, you can simply swap out the existing diffuser with this new chandelier for an updated look.
