Enlighten is an energy-independent, intelligent window shield designed to seamlessly fit any window to create a custom interior atmosphere. It also adapts to the constantly changing weather to more efficiently manage light and heat as it enters the space. Enlighten has three core components: a multi-layered self-adhering glass film, an extruded aluminium smart housing, and an intuitive control wand. The veil itself comprises several thin film layers. First, a transparent photovoltaic layer that captures the sun’s energy to power the device. The next few layers utilise liquid crystal technology to control the opacity, colour and design of the veil – enabling Enlighten to endlessly change its appearance.
Enlighten is a 2015 Red Dot Award: Design Concept winner.
