Lune - a freetime project.
Tangible Light Interaction
While working at IDEO in Chicago, I met lovely and talented people, but could not work with them due to differing projects. This gave me the initiative to ask for a freetime project, we could all do together and improve / learn new skills.
Freetime project // Interaction & Product Design // Support by Rob Rehr (Electro ingenieur at IDEO) // Project with Lene Rydningen
This project was a collaboration between the Interaction Design intern at IDEO - Lene Rydningen and the electro engineer Rob Rehr - employee at IDEO. It started between Lene and I, as we decided to do a project together for fun. We wanted to learn from each other and create a minimal lamp which you can lay on a table as well as hanging on the wall.
Colors, shapes and materials are fun to explore! A combination between a hard an natural material and textile for the interaction should transport a cosy and connected feel.
If you prefer, you can put the lamp on the table and use it as a decoration piece. Or you can simply hand it onto the wall to brighten up the room.
Use one ore more fingers and double tap to turn on the lamp.
DE-/ INCREASE BRIGHTNESS
Spread your fingers apart while touching the fabric - to increase the brightness. To decrease, simple do the opposite motion.
ACTIVATE SPECIFIC AREAS
Follow the outer circle of the fabric to activate certain areas of LEDs.
