A visionary designer shapes and lights up an industrial component.
Let’s start the sunlight voyage.

Organic round forms inspired by nature for the new Lovegrove’s
diffuser designed for VELUX Sun Tunnel.

Not just an ‘add on’ product, the new solar lamp emphasizes the fusion
of aesthetics with functionality.

Inspired by the concept of harnessing natural light by bringing its
purity and uplifting qualities into your home, Ross Lovegrove has developed
a design that creates ‘a moment of enlightenment in your home’
– a contemporary interface between the tunnel of light and the interior design
of living spaces.

The VELUX Sun Tunnel captures sun rays and returns them with a beautiful light
reflectance in the room while the diffuser allows the adjustment of the light direction.

The VELUX Sun Tunnel consists of a roof integrated flush frame, super reflective coating
telescopic tunnels made by MIRO-SILVER®, providing more than 98% internal reflection
rate, and a diffuser. VELUX sun tunnels are especially suitable for spaces where
installation of windows is not possible and where electrical light would normally
be the only other option.
