‘Day & Night’ light, by Éléonore Delisse

LIFE ENHANCER OF THE YEAR

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) affects millions around the globe each year. Noticing the lack of a considered, design-led response to the problem, Éléonore Delisse created this light as part of her Design Academy Eindhoven graduation project. Dichroic glass rotates alongside a lamp to project the colours that we need to rebalance our circadian rhythm. It glows blue in the morning to stimulate wakefulness, and warm orange at night to softly send us to sleep. It’s a beautifully designed solution to winter blues.
