CoeLux® Experience the Sky

Experience the bliss and the joy of sunny skies anywhere and at any time.

CoeLux® is a scientific breakthrough, allowing you for the first time to reproduce in an interior space the physical effects and optical phenomena of natural light, specifically the diffusion and transmission of sunlight through the atmosphere.

CoeLux® technology recreates the sun and sky allowing you to truly experience the outdoors while indoors.

CoeLux® combines three key elements:

  • The latest LED technology which reproduces the sunlight’s spectrum;
  • A sophisticated optical system that creates the sensation of the distance between the sky and the sun;
  • A nanostructured materials, only a few millimeters thick, which recreate the entire Rayleigh scattering process which occurs in the atmosphere.

CoeLux® is an optical system based on nano-technology to artificially reproduce the natural light and visual appearance of the sun and sky.

You need to experience CoeLux® to appreciate it.

Like trying to describe the scent of a perfume, or the colors of a tropical sun, words are insufficient to convey CoeLux®’s uplifting effects.

One can say that it produces feelings of lightness and well-being, but until you’ve basked beneath its sunny blue sky, until you’ve seen for yourself how it transforms a space, the way it illuminates and enhances everything in its path, you’ll never understand how CoeLux® is changing the world of contemporary lighting design.

The effect of warm, artificial, direct sunlight illuminates and enhances objects, completely transforming domestic and public spaces, giving them volume and shape through light and shadow, and creating a new relationship between people and the architectural space which surrounds them.

Our Philosophy

“To connect people back to a true natural light sensation through the use of high-end and hyper-realistic technology”

Our purpose

At home or in an office, in a shop, museum, hospital, airplane or train. In a space as small as an elevator or as large as a stadium, CoeLux® systems elevate the user’s mood and sense of well-being on a primal level, increasing the quality of the space we inhabit, our productivity and feeling of well- being within it as well as transforming the presentation of products or works of art on display.

We believe that CoeLux® will fast become an essential component in the design of interior spaces: a virtual window to the sky and the sun where no other opportunity exists to connect with the outdoors.

We envisage over time that our technology will be applied on the exteriors of buildings, to expand the sky into the urban environment as well. CoeLux® technology enables the physical reconstruction of natural light, giving people the opportunity to experience the sun and the sky everywhere.

15 years in the making

The CoeLux® idea originates from 8 years of activity spent for developing the science and art exhibition “Di Luce in Luce” – the exhibition launched the idea of the indoor reconstruction of atmospheric optical phenomena to improve connections between art and everyday life. CoeLux® was founded in 2009 as a spin-off of the University of Insubria, Como – the Univeristy is a shareholder in CoeLux Holding.

Unique technology, true sensations

Relying upon nano-tech sky that responds to light as the real one does, high-brightness projector that simulates the sun and optical units that recreate the cosmic depth inside a box, CoeLux® devices produce the true Rayleigh scattering effect of natural sunlight in an infinite and clear-blue sky, radically enhancing spaces that would otherwise be deprived of natural daylight.

The contrast with other, traditional artificial sky luminaires is huge: they deliver mixed blue/white diffused light for a weak cloud effect, whereby some are little more than a flat panel display screen – direct sun beams are missing, as well the casted object shadows blue-tinged by the diffused light of the sky, significantly reducing the true sun & sky sensation.

Only CoeLux® ensures to experience the infinite depth of view that cancels the anxiety of a closed space.
