Manipulating Light with Movement

 

Do we understand what happens when we dim our lights? How can we include dimming as a part of the design? These are some of the questions that triggered the design of Exploded View, a series of lighting objects that incorporate movement as a key element of its design.

 

By moving the light-source away from, or closer to the lighting object, the intensity of the light can be adapted. After all, the sun never fades; it is the earth that moves closer and further away, causing the light to reflect, change colour, dim or die. Ultimately, the experiment has led to a series of lamps representing different approaches: Cumulus, which dims through layering, Eclipse, which keeps the light contained or sets it free, and Lunar which plays with reflection.

Cumulus (dimming)
As Cumulus has several lampshades, the light is easily dimmable by layering the various shades. Each lampshade gives a different light intensity. They can be pulled apart like an exploded-view drawing.  

 

Eclipse (darken)
In this edition, the light is like a jack in the box. When the light is covered, only a weak beam of light shines through. When the light source is moved downwards, the light becomes brighter.  

 

 

Lunar (reflect)
By means of a reflecting lampshade, the light is reflected. Depending on the position of the light bulb to the cover, the light is reflected at the top or bottom.

Note: due to the LED, we highly recommend dimming
the light to your wishes. Full powered LED light can be blinding. Please use a suitable LED dimmer for 200-240 vac, the quality of the dimmer has direct influence on the light stability.
