Here Comes the Sun / Heater and Lighting

Here Comes the Sun
Here Comes the Sun

A heater design that simulates sunlight through a window. The “Here Comes the Sun” is a window shaped heater that simulates sunshine through the window. The users can see and feel the warmth of the sun psychologically and physically. The design mainly employs the carbon fiber electric heater and the LED panel. Compared with the traditional heater, the application of the carbon fiber electric heater is safer and thinner. Moreover, the LED panel can simulate daylights and provide diverse weather modes. People can be positively encouraged by the simulated daylights. When the shutters deliver the warmth, the sun comes in and also brings the hope.
