Sky Inside UK

About our Living Skies™

Living Skies are realistic windows that brighten dark spaces. They help you to relax and reconnect with nature.

Ideal for areas that have little access to natural light – such as windowless rooms or basements – Living Skies produce the realistic effect of looking out a window.

Our products display biophilic moving images that reflect the natural cycle of the world outside. They bring the experience of nature to interior spaces, where you can be transported to different seasons in locations all around the world.

Health and wellbeing

Most importantly, they generate profound benefits for the mind, body and soul. Scientifically proven to reduce feelings of stress and anxiety, our Living Skies promote physical and mental nourishment.

What is biophilia?

Do you feel content when walking through a lush, leafy forest? How about when laying on a sunny beach, or looking at a peaceful starry night sky? This is because of our biophilic connection to nature.

According to biologist theory, biophilia is the intrinsic connection that we as humans have with the natural world. Research conducted all over the globe has shown the significant impact that nature has on our health and wellbeing.

What is biophilic design?

Where the urban environment is rapidly growing around us, it’s important we stay connected to nature. Biophilic design – used by architects, interior designers and many more – aims to maintain the relationship between humans and the natural world through our modern, built surroundings.

So, biophilic design works to preserve our mental and physical wellness in human-made structures through the healing power of nature.

We can reconnect you with nature

With biophilic design in mind, our Living Sky ceilings and windows have been created through world-class research and by using the latest technological advances.

Able to be placed on any wall, ceiling or surface in a room, they feature crystal-clear digital imagery with bespoke designs – from wispy cloud scenes to sparkling night skies.

The full-spectrum, daylight-balanced systems we use have Circadian Rhythm® programming, so our LED skylights and windows reflect the day’s true cycle. With the colour temperature of real daylight at 6,500K, they produce maximum brightness while using the lowest power.

Medically validated

We have worked with leading research facilities when developing our products. These have confirmed that the specific lighting balance we create instantly starts the production of the hormone melatonin in the pineal gland.

Melatonin is then released and carried from the brain through the bloodstream to all areas of the body. The hormone helps to regulate the body’s circadian cycle, promoting better sleep quality. It also encourages the body to relax and eases feelings of stress and anxiety.

Therefore, our Living Skies – alongside brightening dark and lifeless interior spaces – can provide more calming and enjoyable environments.
