PRODUCT 

CHALLENGE 

Luminous wall sconces can be an important element of a lighting design, adding a unique layer of perimeter light can brighten a space, create visual rhythm, or establish an artistic luminous element 
 
The objective was to create an artistic grouping of day lit “port holes” on a side wall using Solatube Daylighting Systems in a nontraditional way. 

SOLUTION 

This unique application was constructed by installing Solatube Daylighting Systems configured with Spectralight Infinity 0-90 Degree Tubing. This allowed for a vertical tube run down a finished wall, creating a wall sconce lit by natural light.
