It’s a simple concept with an on-target execution. The modules are beautiful architectural elements made of aluminum and glass. The integrated LED illumination ranges from 2200-6500 K, simulating the fluctuations in light during a typical cloud-free day, “changing in color and intensity throughout the day, just like sunlight through a real window.”
