If your spaces fall short when it comes to natural sunlight, there are plenty of things you can do to remedy the situation. One clever design that really caught our eye was this modern coffee table that also doubles up as a heliostat! Created by Danish designer Dag Igland, Pure Sunlight is the perfect way to bring tons of clean and free light into your home with the simple tilting of mirrors. The table is the first in a range of objects the designer hopes will get users to consider not only the piece at hand, but how they use energy and where it comes from.
