Sun sill

The drab, hollow days of winter make many of us (myself included) yearn for the glorious sun of summer — or at least some kind of light therapy device capable of alleviating some of the ‘blah’ symptoms of the winter blues. But perhaps it could be as simple as installing some kind of sun-catcher, or a mirrored device that reflects sunlight into our homes. British designer Lucy Norman’s Sun Sill builds on this idea, using windowsill-mounted mirrors to bounce scarce sunlight into dark interiors.

Like a computer-controlled heliostat, Sun Sill’s mirrors are controlled via a smartphone application that tracks the user’s location and automatically determines the best position for the mirrors to catch sunlight into the same spot all day
