CoeLux’s artificial skylights have rocked the industry due to their convincing reproduction of sunlight. Now the company has launched a new version that aims to be just as successful at recreating the night sky.
CoeLux Moon is being launched at Euroluce 2017, which is currently taking place in Milan.
‘The moon, unlike the sun, lets you look at her, it seems she wants to be looked at,' commented Paolo Di Trapani, CEO of CoeLux, who is behind the latest innovation.
CoeLux chose last year’s LuxLive to launch the second generation of the CoeLux daylight range, which is comprised of smaller less costly fittings.
‘By rebuilding the physical mechanisms that happen in the atmosphere we have ended up with a product that allows people to feel the same as they do when they look up at the real sky.’ Di Trapani continued.
CoeLux Moon aims to create a comforting and relaxing ambience and less light is used to produce the final effect than the original sunlight CoeLux uses.
The potential health benefits that might be derived from using CoeLux are still being investigating by the company.
CoeLux claims to have psychological and physiological data on the capacity of people to relax and feel calmer when using CoeLux and it might even possibly be used to improve post-operation recovery times in hospitals.
‘We have evidence from the psychological ward at the San Raffaele Hospital in Milan, that people who have a room on the sunny east side recovered 20 to 30 percent faster from operations than those on the west side of the building,’ Di Trapani told Lux Magazine.
It will be interesting to see if CoeLux Moon has the same effect on wellbeing as the company’s original skylight.
