The komorebi projector displays sunlight indoors with the shadows and reflections of an outside environment

Cities has long been creating taller buildings to accommodate all of the people who want to live in them. However, this means the rooms in these structures receive less natural night through their windows, if they have any at all. Leslie Nooteboom, a design engineer, wants to address this issue with komorebi, a projector that displays a sunlight experience indoors.

The projector displays an artificial sunbeam on a wall or a flat surface, complete with the outline of a window and leaves waving back and forth. The dynamic projector sits atop a platform that slowly rotates throughout the day, mirroring the movement of sunlight’s natural progression. The owner of the device can adjust the settings and program the specifics of the projection, down to the sunbeam’s shape and how it interacts with the environment.

Currently, Nooteboom wants to bring komorebi to the market and is seeking a manufacturing partnership.
