Parans Hybrid Fixture: Solar and Fluorescent Mashup

We were intrigued by the Parans light pipe luminaires when they first came out- they make so much sense, why pay for light when the sun makes it for free? Unfortunately, some of us have to work when the sun isn't shining, so artificial light is still necessary. Parans has an answer for this too- the hybrid fixture, with standard T5 fluorescent tubes that that dim automatically according to how much natural light that is emitted. When the sun comes out, the fixture is brighter and the colour balance changes so you know it is sunny and you are reconnected to the rhythms of the world outside your cube farm. With Vitamin D back in the news, perhaps these should be a legal requirement. ::Parans via ::Materialicio.us
