FLOvers Floor Lamp by Denis Orlenok

Home > Winners > #46726


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
FLOvers

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Floor Lamp

INSPIRATION:
Light transformation principal is inspired by the laws of nature. Similarly to plants, that have unfolded petals to seize a light energy from the sun during the day and closed sleeping blossoms during the night, FLOvers floor lamp share the light when it is needed - in both directions for maximum lightning and in the bottom for subtile illumination.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
FLOvers is transforming floor lamp for a local interior lighting. Its transformation, based on a valve principle, allows user to direct the flow of the light according to the needs: in the top, in the bottom or in the both directions.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
User can simply change the direction of the light according to the period of the day and the need of illumination in the living area simply by operating the valves. Direction of the light is changed from general lighting to delicate and subtile by holding a stiffener edge and changing the angle of the valve (each segment can be operated separately). First and second holding positions are reached by the friction of the valves, while the fixation of the upper position is possible due to the magnets hidden on the edge.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The design project has started in October 2009 and was finished in the beginning of 2010 at Vilnius Academy of Arts in Lithuania. FLOvers light was exhibited in Vilnius Academy of arts, Salone Satellite Worldwide Moscow 2010 in October and in 2011 April was exhibited in 17-th international LITEXPO specialized exhibition of furniture.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
FLOvers floor lamp consists of a few easily assembled parts: semi-transparent organic glass body ("milky" color), three valves to transform the direction of light (plastic and brushed aluminum composite), fixing base and lamp rise that are molded together for the highest stability and the least usage of space in the living area. Light source - fluorescent lamp.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
380 x 380 x 1700 mm

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
In the center of design research - basic laws of nature, photosynthesis, affect of the light on plants, blossoms and leafs. Schemes of opening and closing the blossoms of flowers were studied with design methods to purify construction principles. Bionic forms were analysed to define the core associatives and values which were abstractionized afterwards and implemented with rational form and minimalistic style to make the principle of controlling user-friendly, shape visually aesthetic and emotionally unattached.

CHALLENGE:
The main design challenge was to implement the adjustment of the light source with comfortable rotation of the valves. The rotation element itself supposed to be light and strong enough at the same time. To solve this issue aluminum composite material is used with additional edge of rigidity that is also used as handle to hold and change the angle of the element. The fixation of the primary and middle positions is reached by the friction of the valves. Attachment in the upper position is possible due to the neodymium magnets hidden on the edges of three segments as well as inside the main "milk-white" polyacrylate body.
