Lighting Guiding Daylight Blinds and Skylights

This post is about Light guiding daylight venetian blinds made by Warema from Germany.  Notice the upper window band is covered with venetian blinds and there is light reflected upwards on the ceiling.  The lower vision windows allow clear views to the outside landscape.

Highly reflective blades oriented upside down take sunlight and re-direct it upwards onto the ceiling in the room.  This reduces the need for electric lighting in spaces with relatively low ceilings.

Notice the bright daylighting in the background.  Those are from skylights punctuating deep into the space to bring natural light in normally dark areas.
