Roof Top Lights

5 Jan

So I was going to post something completely different today but instead I discovered Roof Top Lights by Lightboys through CollabCubed’s blog and thought I should share this. I love the idea which is reminiscent of baroque trompe-l’oeil. Quite exquisite!

Roof Top Lights, by Lightboys, are large-format illuminated photographs mounted on an ultra-thin housing that contains LEDs. Suddenly, you not only have an overhead light, but a skylight or church dome or treetops, even a disco ball, right over your head, as well! To quote their website “These are images which not only open up rooms, but also hearts and minds…”

Lightboys also make Lightwalls and Polaboys (backlit large-scale photos with the look of a Polaroid).

Very cool, if a bit pricey.
