Colour Injector Interactive Multicoloured Lamp by Taras Sgibnev

DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Colour Injector

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Interactive Multicoloured Lamp

INSPIRATION:
I tried to explore the nature of colour and to represent it as a piece of interactive design. The lamp allows people to gradually change the colour of its light in an unconventional way by providing a simple and intuitive interface. The challenge was to create an ‘in-n-out’ system where an unusual analogue/digital input was connected to an analogue/digital output in order to make some fun and provoke people into the emotional response.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Colour injector is an interactive multicoloured lamp designed as a physical expression of the way red, green and blue light are used in digital interfaces to create a full spectrum of different hues.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
1. There are three pairs of syringes connected hermetically so that the external syringes affect the internal ones. 2. The internal syringes change the position of three potentiometer sliders to measure their current position. 3. Arduino converts the analogue input data into the digital output according to the script, each of three RGB colour channels is calculated individually and updated in real time. 4. The signal goes to multicoloured LED tape wrapped around an inner cardboard tube.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The idea of an interactive multicoloured lamp initially came in 2013. It took about a month to produce a working prototype and three months more to develop it to the final outcome. The project was developed in the BHSAD product design production studio in Moscow, Russia.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Syringes suspended below the lamp are connected to another set inside the body using clear tubes so the ink can be seen moving towards or away from the lamp. The handles of the syringes inside the lamp are attached to sliding switches connected to an Arduino microcontroller that controls the colour output of LED rings.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Dimensions: 520 mm (Height), 190 mm (Diameter); the lamp shade is made of white matte plastic; 3 plastic syringes are hung up on varied length tubes.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The original idea was to create an analogue converter from CMYK to RGB colours. So initially, there was a prototype with 4 syringes. However, I decided to simplify the concept and made a direct representation of RGB colour system. Next, it took a while to choose the final shape of the lamp shade. There were lots of sketches and a series of prototypes which gradually led to the most minimal shape possible.

CHALLENGE:
It was difficult task to invent a simple yet reliable way to digitise the physical input in real time. Several sensors including barometers and potentiometers were tested. However, the biggest challenge during the prototype development was to hide all the electronics inside the lamp so that nothing except control syringes and a power cable go outside of the shade.
