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.

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.

 

 

 

 

INSPIRATION BOARD

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.

DE-/ INCREASE BRIGHTNESS

Spread your fingers apart while touching the fabric - to increase the brightness. To decrease, simple do the opposite motion.
