DiDi table lamp
An application of new LED technology
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The DiDi collection consists of elements created for the specific use of LED strips high efficiency and low energy consumption.
The supporting structure and the lighting elements blend together become one by getting a together strict, functional and homogeneous.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
A lamp that can live in a working environment such as in a home environment.
The gaming double diffusion of light, direct and indirect, allowing you to have a pleasant and versatile lighting that fits well in any environment.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in autumn 2012 and presented Euroluce in Milan in April 2013
FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Structurally very simple consists of a sandwich structure, formed from sheets of Polycarbonate from 12 and 6 mm. thick, machined and laser, subsequently assembled.
The fold of a corner of the two outer sheets of 6 mm., The desktop version, allows the creating a stable base of support.
The dimensioning of the parts and the consequent manufacturing process have been studied to obtain the optimization of the raw material and ease of assembly.
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
LED, NEW, SOFT
I would invite you to reflect on the power to change the public’s taste that the contours of cars have had on our society. The evolution of people’s taste is a direct consequence of the evolution of car styles.
Did cars got squared-off shapes?
Consequently the products we were offered, from furnishings to electrical appliances, had squared-off shapes.
Do cars have soft, rounded profiles?
Also products in daily use have the same shape characteristics.
We do not realize it but every new detail developed in the motor industry has brought with it an involuntary, global, acute change of people’s tastes in general.
This is due to the fact that this industry has always been in the front line as far as materials, technologies
and manufacturing solutions are concerned and that once acquired have been used in other industries too.
The last few years have seen a new phenomenon.
Easy to come by electronics have their part in educating taste and generating need!
If we did not have a mobile phone, we would not need a cover for it, or earphones, and the same is true for our tablets and personal computers.
In these industrial fields just a few companies vie for the world market with the global diffusion of their products and the styles they propose which inevitably condition the aesthetic tastes of consumers around the world.
Today we are witnessing a formal game of catch as catch can in spheres that go from home appliances to furnishings, inspired by the various electronic gadgets we can no longer do without.
We all use these tools in our everyday lives and inevitably we are conditioned into modifying our general sense of the aesthetic.
It is an involuntary form of education which designers and producers must take into account to make their products widespread consumer items.
In my opinion, the profession and figure of the designer today, as far as product design is concerned, must be a union between an expert in marketing and a keen connoisseur of the new technologies and production processes, as well as, obviously having great skills in synthesis!
The project is an application of the technology of the latest generation LED.
It was practically impossible, until a few years ago, we can think of a lamp as the DiDI.
The new lighting fixtures, such as LED strips, led to new formal experimentation and moved to the limits.
