“Daylight is essential for our well-being and ability to think positively, and Velux makes exceptional quality skylights, flooding spaces with daylight.  However, to create an intimate and recreational space, light control is an absolute must-for sleeping, working or privacy.  So when Velux asked me to design a blackout collection, I was excited to get to work with light versus darkness.  Blackout blinds are the key to maintaining a satisfying sleep cycle and ideal for bedrooms and other spaces where complete light control is a must”. says Karim Rashid.
