Flying light
Client: Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Laboratory of Intelligent Systems

This research explores the concept of light source mobility. Like the iconic anglepoise lamp, a classic light offering a total freedom of movement over a desk, Low Gravity will extend this ability to anywhere in space. This is made possible through new technologies.
The light prototype is placed manually at a specific point and starts to levitate as soon as the contact with the user is broken. The result is quite poetic and emotional. Its utilitarian dimension will increase with technological advance

Aeronautical constraints led us to completely optimize the concept of weight and airflow. The shape of the light is directly inspired by rocket nozzles. This contributes to unblock the thrust of the airflow towards the ground. The solution chosen to reduce the weight is to propose a self-supporting shell. The structural and diffusing functions are synthesized in a single element.
