DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Lexilight

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Reading Lamp

INSPIRATION:
Lexilight is a reading lamp, so it has been design to look like a benevolent little friend which stands up on the desk bent over the book, like parents could do when they teach how to read to their kids. The lamp foot edges/lines have neither a start or an end point, as a metaphor of what reading is: a never ending story.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Lexilight, which combines both pulsed and modulated light, erases the mirror picture that a dyslexic person sees. This person is now able to read easier, faster and longer without eye strain. The strength of this design is what designers call the acceptance effect. Dyslexia is a handicap people use to hide, so designers make this lamp a desirable object for children, teenagers and adults. When children see it as a little figure, teenagers see a stylish lamp and adults, a nice piece of art and product design.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Lexilght is a reading lamp which can be used at home, school or office, wherever people need to read. As many kids need it, Lexilight is delivered with a transport bag which allows them to bring it from home to school each days. When Lamp is installed user have to push on the main button to choose between 2 modes: Lexilight mode or normal light. Two potentiometers allow the user to adjust the light wave by acting on the pulsation and modulation to adapt to each individual.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project starts in Paris (France) on November 2018 and finished in Saint Malo (France) in October 2019.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Lexilight head is made of ABS with metal painting finishing. Light diffusor is injected in PMMA. The foot is made with ZAMAC and is anodized in a post process. The full lamp is assembled in France in a factory in which 100% of worker are handicaped people.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Widht 270 mm x Depth 185 mm x Height 300 mm

TAGS:
lighting, reading lamp, dyslexia, lexilight, PAD, table lamp, made in France

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
At first, we decided that more than helping dyslexic children to read, we would like to give them the Will to read. So we focus on when and were kids like to read, and make some design proposals according to. Then we present each concept to children from a school next to our studio and discussed with them on how to improve it. After few weeks the table lamp concept was finalized. Then we make prototypes and we launch a 100 users test. We included remarks about ergonomic, style, colors into the final version which has been tested by 120 children over France during 2 months and validated by them and their parents.

CHALLENGE:
The hardest part was to make that lamp desirable for children between 6-10 years but also for teanagers and adults. It was a very difficult to build a design language which could fit a school ecosystem and also a business office or a teenager bedroom.

NAME:
Lexilife

PROFILE:
Who are we? The Lexilife adventure begins with the development of a revolutionary lamp, Lexilight, capable of making reading easier for millions of dyslexics. After 20 years of French research, finalizing a prototype and testing it, the result is clear: 90% of dyslexics say they effortlessly read a text illuminated by the lamp. Jean-Baptiste Fontes, founder of Lexilife, decided to share it with as many people as possible. Manufacturing costs and selling prices are still high, but the more it is known and adopted, the more accessible it will be. Surrounded by Thomas Zuber for his scientific expertise and Paola Bourdon for his marketing skills, Jean-Baptiste launched into the deployment of the lamp. Soon, the team faced several obstacles related to the lack of knowledge of dyslexia by the entire society - individuals and institutions alike. The team, concerned about this disorder both professionally and personally, sees it as a cause to be defended. Indeed, 8 to 10% of the population must live with an unknown disorder, sometimes denied, sometimes mocked... often hidden. Lexilife will therefore be a committed company that, not only with the Lexilight lamp, but also through many actions (Research and Development, institutional awareness, etc.) will work to improve the lives of dyslexics.
