Day + Night…Light With A Purpose

One thing becomes evident when browsing Eleonore Delisse‘s work – she cares about more than just design for design’s sake.  Take, for example, her Day & Night Light which recently won Wallpaper Magazine’s Life Enhancer of the Year Design Award.  It not only looks stunning, but it was designed to help out with the winter blues caused by low sunlight levels.  The dichroich glass rotates to project blue in the morning and warm orange in the evening.  This color shift helps balance the circadian rhythm, therefore balancing the mood. Her interests seem broad, but touch back to one basic focus, which is helping her fellow humans.  She decided to tackle this problem after observing the lack of design behind these essential fixtures.  Her graduate project solved it.
