House of Shimmer-Well / Friendly darkroom

House of Shimmer-Well
House of Shimmer-Well

1.In this crowded city, daylighting is restricted due to the buildings, resulting in the darkroom, which often appears in a house, student dorm, hotel rooms, etc. The House of Shimmer-Well is a light guide device that can share and bring more light sources to the cities.
2.House of Shimmer-Well is constructed in a dark room to let light in, and an oval light-guiding glass is installed on the top. The wall is covered with triangular bases, and highly reflective glass makes the light source diverge. The reflective surface installed at the bottom of the column can reflect the light to the mirror surface, leaving the light in the tower.
