In light of the 2014 IMM Cologne Exhibition and the growing movement towards adapting design with technology, Rotterdam designer Arnout Meijer created and designed a series of color-changing lamps called 'Thanks for the Sun.'

Meijer was inspired by the need for a lighting system that is capable of satisfying the multifaceted role of different shades of lighting. By providing bright white lights for efficient work and concentration, a warmer lighting hue will help the user relax before bed by inducing slumber.

Arnout Meijer presented this project at the IMM Cologne Trade Fair as part of the [D3] Design Talents Exhibition.

According to Meijer, he wanted to "let light play the main character. So [he] wanted to make a lamp series where the design and the shape was about the light."
