Inlor Desk Lamp by Yunus Emre Pektaş

DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Inlor

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Desk Lamp

INSPIRATION:
I wanted to design a lamp that can be adjustable for the user’s preferences but would also be minimal at the same time. Simplicity in basic geometrics shapes was the key point for this project. Inlor’s design combines these elements with a perfect modern touch.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Inlor is a lamp that aims to meet functionality with simplicity by it’s design. The user can arrange the pieces for his/her desire by arranging the rod and the wooden base. The lamp uses 2 bright warm white LED’s that are placed evenly for maximum luminosity. Adjusting the parts and intensity of the LED’s can turn the lamp into an ambient light or a desk lamp with a desired form.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Using this lamps is as simple as it’s minimal design. With a simple twist of the power ring the lamp turns on. As you continue turning the ring, the light intensity increases. Users can arrange the lamp's brightness, height and angle with 3 basic movements; by rotating the power ring, moving the oak piece along the rod and rotating the rod.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in January 2015 in Ankara, Turkey as a midterm project in junior year. After three and a half months of sketching and prototyping the project was finalized. The final prototype was then tested with users for feedback, and with their feedback some final changes were made to it’s form to perfect the simple modern design.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The lamp is made up of three main parts, an aluminum body, aluminum top part for LED's and electronic parts and an oak support part. The aluminum rod part was produced by a 4 axes CNC laser. The top part is connected by two O-rings to the base aluminum rod for an easy install. A silicone ring is used for stabilization between the base aluminum and the wooden part. A steel bar is located at the bottom of the aluminum rod to provide weight for balance. The lenses in front of the two LED's help to provide a wide angle of light. The Lamp’s rotating power ring is made of plastic.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Aluminum rod Length: 450mm, Diameter: 25mm, Thickness: 1mm, Oak plywood support Height: 165mm, Width: 200mm Max. Thickness: 15mm, Min.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
My aim was to design a minimal, modern desk lamp. To do this my research focused on the simplicity in geometrics shapes and their relationships with each other.

CHALLENGE:
The production of simple and minimal products may not be as simple as we expect them to be. The development and production of the aluminum top part, which holds the LED’s, circuit, heat sinks, wires and the power ring, was the most challenging part of the product. The main challenge with the part was to find out the right form and angle for the LED’s and also be easy to attach to the aluminum rod part. After a lot of sketches, mockups and prototypes the final form was made. The second challenge with the part was to make it easy to repair if anything happens to the inner parts; such as the premature fail of the LED’s. It was important to me as a designer to enable the user to easily change the LED's by removing the top part.
