Adjustable movable lamp
The inspiration for the inMOOV lamp comes from the movements in nature such as flowers opening or jellyfish swimming.
I wanted to transfer this fascinating movement into a living space.
For the body of the lamp, inspired by the Invertible Cube of Paul Schatz, I invented the Invertible Disc that can fold itself in and out.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
inMOOV is a ceiling lightening device.
Its unique features are that its body is movable around lamp’s horizontal axis folding itself inside and out. This movement is based on my invention of the Invertible Disc.
The body of the lamp is fitted with LED strips of maximum luminous flux of 1200 lm. Users adjust position of the lamp’s body by hand. By doing so they can choose light colour changes form 3500 when it is open to 2500 Kelvin when it is closed.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The unique feature of this lamp is its ability to folds itself inside out.
Through this movement of the lampshade it is possible to regulate the intensity and the direction of the light.
The fully opened lamp creates a soft light directed to the ceiling. The folded lamp creates more focused and warm light that illuminates the space underneath it.
The movement can be done by hand.
