designer's own words:

1.CONCEPT: Natural illumination is very nature-friendly lighting using sun and moon light from the nature. At night it can make beautiful natural lighting using moon light to give you clean and fresh feeling as you are in the forest. Natural illumination could be used in public place at night as an outdoor lighting and even it could be used in remote area of Africa as it doesn't need any electricity. It can reflect sunlight in semi-basement and dark area where needed to be turned on the light at daytime and this makes us save energy and save earth.

2.USER SCENARIOS: Natural illumination can be used as lighting source in tent at camp. Natural illumination can be used as lighting source to read books and for mood lighting. It can reflect sunlight in semi-basement and dark area where needed to be turned on the light at daytime.

3.STRUCTURE MOVEMENT: Mirror module is reflecting sunlight and moonlight easily by rotating module and adjust holder. A knob of holder makes easy mounting on the table and other object. Each mirror module numbers could be increase and reduced as to environment and various spot for natural lighting.
