We look, feel and sleep our best with natural light, but unfortunately not every space is blessed with a sun-filled window. We now spend ~80% of our time indoors, and artificial light falls woefully short of providing the cues we depend on to feel our best (see our science page for details). Recent advances in technology have made it possible to bring the benefits of natural light back indoors. Sunlight Inside was founded to make beautiful, healthy natural light available and easy to use!
The science linking light and health is established, and the technology to recreate natural light is now available … so why are we still living and working with ugly, unhealthy artificial light?
❶ cost – the light/LED mixing technology which recreates natural light is priced at a premium
> we offer world’s highest quality light source, and simplest control interface, at a modest margin
❷ complexity – today’s solutions aren’t user friendly, with multiple steps for install and control
> we deliver natural light right out of the box – no setup or installation required!
❸ confusion – scientists are arguing over the details of how light triggers different human responses
> our light is the closest to natural light of any light you can buy = beautiful & healthy!
how we’re different:
At Sunlight Inside we’re focused on ‘doing business differently’. We design, build, and sell sustainable, long-lasting lighting products, which are hand-made in northern California. Our lives are already filled with too many cheap disposable electronic products. Sunlight Inside’s products are built to last 20 years (without the need ever replace a bulb), and are made of wood, metal and glass – we deliberately minimize the use of plastics. We source our wood from a sustainable forestry in the Midwest and finish it with the world’s finest VoC free products from AFM Safe Coat. At Sunlight Inside we are pioneering the concept of ‘boutique manufacturing’ – instead of mass-manufacturing in Asia we hand build each lamp to order right here in North California, and source our electronics locally – for us there’s no ‘extra’ inventory or long/distributed supply chains. This does mean you have to wait a few days to receive your lamp, but we think doing business differently is worth it – we hope you do to!
what we do:
Sunlight Inside’s natural light products transform your home, office and business — just plug in one of our Sunlight Lamps and brighten your life with extra natural light! Our Sunlight Lamps are built with the world’s finest tunable light source which actively mixes together all the colors of the rainbow for beautiful and healthy light — nothing comes closer to recreating the cycles of natural light. Our custom lamp controllers contain an internal clock programmed with the time of day, time of year and your location — allowing them to automatically deliver the daily and seasonal changes in sunlight. Enjoy natural light right out of the box, there is no set-up or App required — our Sunlight Lamps are preset to your address before shipment, so just plug it in and turn it on!
