Luminous SkyCeilings™

Backlit skyscape images create engaging virtual skylights.


Sky Factory's Luminous SkyCeilings™ are the only LED Sky Ceilings that have earned international recognition for research and architectural design. As the only research-verified virtual skylights in the world, our illusions of nature are unique.

Open skies image technology

Designed and manufactured according to a proprietary framework called Open Skies Image Technology, artists, engineers, and craftspeople collaborate in creating images that have a multisensory effect on human physiology.

The result is Open Sky Compositions that are not only beautiful depictions of sky events, but simultaneously engage spatial cognition.

This phenomenon, backed by published research, endows our installations with the ability to engross observers in an optical illusion that yields meaningful therapeutic benefits for the mind and body.

Restorative and healing biophilic design

Sky Factory's illusions of nature™ are a visual technology that goes beyond distracting the viewer with a backlit image. Instead, these illusions of the sky reduce mental agitation and evoke a visceral feeling of expansion while engaging our organs of perception.

It is this feeling of expansion in enclosed interiors that is responsible for the deeper restorative experience that observers have reported for over a decade.
