SILVER: Marvin Awaken Skylight by Marvin

Awaken offers more features than a traditional skylight, including supplemental LED lighting, projection venting for more efficient airflow and a hidden perimeter screen to keep debris out. This smart skylight can be programmed to automatically vent when the IAQ reaches a certain threshold and can be controlled with an app, switch or voice control.

Awaken Skylight Windows

The Marvin Awaken Skylight was designed to take advantage of light and air in novel ways and is currently available in select regions. This intelligent skylight window is the first to feature built-in, adjustable lighting that matches the perfect colour temperature of natural light to provide the perfect light at the appropriate moment. Unique, interconnected features make it simple to live a better life.


  • All four sides of skylights are operable for improved air circulation.
  • A perimeter screen that is concealed keeps insects and dirt out without obstructing the view.
  • A wall switch, an app, or smart home systems like Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Samsung SmartThings can be used to control the lighting, ventilation, and shades.
  • When rain is detected, integrated sensors automatically close the skylight.
  • When indoor air quality sensors detect a change in VOC levels, an alert will be transmitted.

Living Well at its Finest

Imagine a home that is inundated with natural light, one that gives an abundance of immersive and peaceful views and helps your body receive the appropriate light at the appropriate moment. Imagine a home that promotes areas for resting, recharging, and gathering with loved ones, a home that encourages you to take a moment to relax. Explore the potential of a home whose design is influenced by your well-being.

Tunable Lighting Provides the Right Light at the Right Time

According to research, exposure to natural light enhances a person’s sense of well-being. Awaken is the first and only skylight that provides adjustable supplemental lighting. The energy-efficient LED lighting can be set to the perfect colour temperature of natural light, thereby supporting circadian rhythm, simplifying day-to-night transitions, and making people feel more at home regardless of where they live, the season, or the orientation of their home.

Optimize the Energy of Your Space with Smart-Sensor Skylight Venting

Awaken’s first-of-its-kind ventilation system makes it simple to refresh any space. Awaken opens on all four sides, allowing fresh air to enter your home more quickly than standard hinged systems. It is equipped with intelligent sensors that automatically turn off the unit if rain is detected, and the indoor air quality sensors will send you a warning if VOC levels fluctuate. So, take a deep breath and appreciate the stimulating effect that a home full of fresh air can offer.

Green Your Environment

Views of the outside world provide a peaceful feeling of place, which is why the characteristics of Awaken’s frame were painstakingly included. Its robust fibreglass structure has been constructed with narrow sight lines to maximize the amount of room for viewing the sky. The glass is not obscured by the patent-pending screen that surrounds the perimeter of the Awaken unit, leaving nothing between you and the view.

Design Options

Utilize a variety of sizes, including the largest operational units on the market, to realize your design idea. And because of Awaken’s low, streamlined shape, even the largest sizes will not dominate a roofline. The intelligent lighting and shading options allow you to tailor the ambience of each area to its demands.

Have It Your Way

Control the ventilation, lighting, and shade of your linked skylight using an app, wall switches, or smart home systems such as Google Home, Amazon Alexa, or Samsung SmartThings.

The Edison Awards

Since 1987, the Edison Awards™ have recognized and honored some of the most innovative new products, services and business leaders in the world.

The Edison Best New Product Awards™ is an annual competition honouring excellence in new product and service development, marketing, human-centered design, and innovation. The competition is open to innovative organizations across the globe. The Edison Awards are focused on the innovators as much as the innovations—a unique distinction in the world of award programs. Award winners represent “game changing” products and services, as well as excellence and leadership in innovation around four criteria:  Concept, Value, Delivery, and Impact. An Edison Award represents significant value to the award winner and to the cause of innovation and highlights the strong marketing value of an unbiased 3rd-party validation.

The Awards are named after Thomas Alva Edison (1847-1931) whose extraordinary new product and market development methods garnered him 1,093 U.S. patents and made him a household name across the world. The Edison Awards™ symbolize the persistence and excellence personified by Thomas Edison and his Menlo Park team, while also strengthening the human drive for innovation, creativity, and ingenuity.
