From Another Galaxy - The Star Wars & VELUX Galactic Night Collection

From Another Galaxy - The Star Wars & VELUX Galactic Night Collection

COPENHAGEN, Denmark, May 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

For decades, the Star Wars universe has been the home of epic encounters just as
children's rooms. Children's rooms just need plenty of daylight during the day and dark
environments at bedtime to ensure a good night's sleep. Continuing their successful design
collaboration, Disney and the VELUX Group meet the demands of modern children's rooms with
their "Star Wars & VELUX Galactic Night Collection". 

The new blind collection introduces a series of four total blackout blinds featuring
popular Star Wars characters and adds home interior to the world's most successful
entertainment concepts.

The dual function of playroom and bedroom calls for high-benefit products when
decorating modern children's rooms and the collection is designed to fulfil these multiple
needs, the dreams of playful children, for creativity and rest.

Making room for personality and sleep 

To help families shape the perfect environment for boys and girls, for play and rest,
Disney and the VELUX Group extended their collaboration with a series of total blackout
blinds inviting children and their parents to join the popularity of Star Wars:The Force
Awakens and to personalise and accessorise the children's room in true Star Wars fan style
without compromising on optimal sleeping conditions.

"Research shows that children's development, as well as their mental and emotional
performance, is closely linked to their sleep patterns. Today, we are able to shape and
support great sleep through optimal sleeping environments like the perfectly darkened room,
" says Peter Foldbjerg, Head of the VELUX Groups knowledge centre, Daylight, Energy and
Indoor Climate.

Design from a galaxy far, far away 

The Star Wars universe is set in a galaxy far, far away. The blinds collection on the
other hand, was designed especially for modern children's rooms with comfort and
individuality in mind. As children grow older they start becoming highly selective
decision makers when it comes to designing their own room. And the new blinds collection
caters particularly for older and more action-loving children.

"Through our collaboration with Disney, we have been able to go a step further and
incorporate imagination and playfulness in our kid's designs. The Star Wars collaboration
is the ultimate way to combine the needs of older children and their parents by linking
total blackout effect to some of the most iconic and epic characters of modern culture,"
says Kent Holm, Vice President of Global Product Management, the VELUX Group.

Iconic and new characters 

With inspiration from the movie Star Wars:The Force Awakens, the collection presents
two designs with new characters "Kylo Ren" and the "Robots" and two designs from the
iconic Star Wars universe the "Darth Vader" and the "Death Star".

The design on each blind is specially designed by the VELUX Group for older children
and scaled to fit the size and shape of a roof window. This makes the characters poster
size, with great graphic details and visual effects that almost bring them to life and
invite children to hours of play with their imaginary friends.  

Making room for epic storytelling and great sleep in the children's room is easy now,
as the Star Wars & VELUX Galactic Night Collection was designed to be a perfect
plug-and-play solution. The blinds are easily installed using the VELUX Pick&Click!(TM)
technology. The new designs also comply with today's OEKO-TEX(R) standards, a guarantee
that no harmful substances or chemicals have been used in the manufacturing of the

STAR WARS and related properties are trademarks and/or copyrights, in the United
