Help us meet this challenge!

Our mission is to make natural light accessible to everyone. To reach more people and introduce new users to the potential of daylighting through light redirection, we realized that we needed a Reflector that could track the sun’s movements.

Join the Espaciel community

When you buy an Espaciel reflector, you join our family. The friends and customers who make up our community are among the most sensitive to natural light, ecology and well-being in respect of natural elements.

Some Espaciel Reflectors owners have also joined the company as associates via Espaciel Heroes or Sowefund. Our phones and mailboxes are filled with messages and photos from prospects and clients who ask us for advice on daylighting.

We share the most common answers on our Facebook and Youtube accounts as well as on our FAQ. Many of these requests are about the ability to reflect the sun’s rays throughout the day. They were our primary motivation for designing the Smart Reflector.

A light source that fits into your life

At Espaciel, our clientele is composed of all types of people who live very different lives. This is one of the beautiful things that makes our user community so diverse. We designed the Intelligent Reflector to fit into your lives and satisfy your need for natural light.

Our story

In 2006 Alexi Hervé, living in a dark apartment, was wondering how to bring the sunlight that passed through the street into his home. After several months of testing in his kitchen and numerous prototypes hanging in the windows of his house and those of his friends, he took the plunge and created Espaciel in 2013.

No doubt there are many more chapters waiting to be written – we are just getting started! Thank you all for being a part of our story.

Risks and challenges

This is our 4th crowdfunding campaign and the 9th Light Reflector we have developed. We know well the pitfalls of launching new products and crowdfunding. Nevertheless, manufacturing is sometimes unpredictable! Parts are delayed. New prices are applied without warning. Truckloads of parts are accidentally delivered to the founder’s old apartment (yes, this has happened to us).

The good news is that we’ve spent the last few years fine-tuning our manufacturing process, not only to control our costs, but also to improve the reliability, accountability and transparency of how we produce. We can’t guarantee that there won’t be any setbacks, but we feel we are better equipped than ever to deal with them.

The campaign has only been running for a few days, and many of you are already following us in this new adventure. So thank you!
