Japanese office workers stay in the office for a long time, and this kind of work culture may be difficult to change in the short term. In order to reduce the pressure on employees in the office, Japan's Mitsubishi Electric has developed an LED lighting system that mimics the blue sky, which went on sale in October this year. The Misola system is an LED display screen that can create the illusion of windows or blue sky.
The Misola system can replace the existing indoor lighting system and can also be used as a supplementary light source. In addition to the blue sky effect in the middle LED display, Mitsubishi Electric designers deliberately let the frame shine to create the illusion of the sun coming in, and it also has a lighting function. The most subtle part of this design is that only up to 3 frames are illuminated at the same time, and the remaining side is shaded, which improves the realism of sunlight.
The Misola system will also adjust the angle of simulated sunlight over time, as well as different light intensities, providing morning, afternoon, and evening "sunlight" effects, which can be set by the customer or adjusted automatically by the system. In addition to being used in offices, Mitsubishi hopes to install them in hospitals and nursing homes, so that people who can’t go out can feel the simulated sunshine and reduce the depression and anxiety caused by long-term indoors.
