    Lighting is necessary since the beginning of the mankind and it has become even more important now to have appropriate lighting. In the recent past, the LED or the Light Emitting Diode is the most famous and customer friendly.http://ledpaneeli.fi

    Any resort in an extreme environment that provides full climate control, such as this does, should not be allowed to tout their pseudo “eco conciousness” with catch phrases like “thermal glass” unchallanged. Not only will these leak heat like a smokestack in a -22 climate, but also LEAK LIGHT, so much for their claim to zero light pollution (well,except itself). To get eco bragging rights the hotel should not heat these, and lighting should be solely by flashlight. You go there to enjoy a NORTHERN treat, the POLAR lights, dress warm, expect to be cold, or just buy the DVD and stay home.

    I thought the place was amazing.. I am an outdoors kind of person but being frost bitten is not one of my simple pleasures. I thought the thermal glass igloos with the views were awesome…

    Celestial theatre boxes. Sky-breaking capsules, on the ground. Lovely architecture.
