Louvre light Light by Natasha Chatziangeli

Home > Winners > #32125


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Louvre light

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Light

INSPIRATION:
I was trying to find an image that represents the greek summer and transform that in an object. Big sun, endless blue sea, clean sand, islands, transparent water. It was then about to remind myself of the very very first image that anyone has when he wakes up in Greece at summer time. It is the sunlight that passes easily even from the closed shutters through louvres. These louvres were translated into rings of plexiglass and cork.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Louvre light is a table lamp that casts no shadows on itself neither on surfaces around it, light passes through the material and causes diffusion. This diffusion plus the volume of the light, and the final aesthetic, can be changed accordingly by users' needs and preferences through a playful process, by simply changing the order of the rings Louvre light is made of. There are endless combinations, customisation, simple interaction, total control and safety.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
You can transform light's diffusion, volume and whole aesthetic by changing the order of the rings. Simply by taking them out and place them in different order. It is a totaly safe and playful activity, with a surprising result that makes you smile. After changing the order, the light gives you the feeling that it is you who actually has constructed it

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in May 2013 and finished at the end of June 2013. It was exhibited in Greek Design Good Design exposition in Athens, from November 28 to December 2, 2013 in Helexpo Palace, in an effort to promote greek design abroad.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Rings of plexiglass were cut using a laser cutter machine, half of them passed from sandblasting process to achive the diffusion level. Cork Rings were cut with cnc machine. Led lamp is used for not causing any heat.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Height 220mm, Base diameter 180mm, ring diameter 140mm, inside diam. 70mm Weight 2.6 kg 6 cork rings, 14 plexi glass rings

TAGS:
light, table lamp, interaction, louvre, louvre light, interactive

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The most difficult part of the designing process was to keep technical and electrical connections in a simple level, as the main shape of the table lamp is, having the minimum impact on the final form.

CHALLENGE:
As the idea came up from an image that bright light passes through the shutter, and wakes you up quietly, I had to find how I would keep the form clean, strong, transparent and at the same time flexible.
