The Sky Ceiling


Taking the trompe d’oeil one step beyond, SkyCeilings are photographic illusions of real skies that fit into standard ceiling grid systems. Luminous SkyCeilings feature fluorescent or LED lighting that illuminate the translucent images from behind. Ambient SkyCeilings are made from opaque image tiles that are lit by room or cove lighting. They’re pretty, but also practical: patients in high-tech health care settings, like radiology suites, register much lower stress levels if they have the illusion of outdoors.  One time when having an unsophisticated brain is actually advantageous!  [GT]
