Altesalux Luminaire by Daniel Guillotin

Home > Winners > #58986


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Altesalux

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Luminaire

INSPIRATION:
The inspiration for this project comes from the work done on the design of a chair (Altesachair) made from the same materials, solid wood and PMMA fluorescences. After discovering the reaction of Pmma to daylight and an Led source, the desire to create a luminous object-sculpture was born ...

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Bright by day, illuminating at night. The particularity of this luminaire is that it reacts to daylight (Without being connected) and becomes illuminated at night thanks to its own Led source. The pmma plates capture the daylight by the faces and restore it only by the slices. When the luminaire is plugged in, the Led source diffuses light through the slices that become wires...

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The particularity of this luminaire is to be bright in the day. Of course, in the evening it lights up like all the lights, but it then becomes another object and creates a very strange orange-red atmosphere.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started after the Design Week of Milan in April 2017 and finished in August 2017 for an exhibition in Paris Design Week 2017 at the galery VIA in september

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Altesalux is made of massive Wenge and Pmma. The assembly of the parts is mechanical, without glue. The three prototypes made before the first specimen made it possible to adjust the proportions and the treatment of the light on the plexiglass. In order to reduce the loss of wood, the greatest lengths have been provided in two parts. It is the plexiglass plates that ensure the holding of all parts. The use of LED ensures a minimum consumption.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Width 470 mm x Depth 250 mm x Height 1600 mm

TAGS:
Light, Transparency, Color, Fluorescent, Wood, Sculpture, Handmade, Limited series

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
My approach is not marketing, it is aesthetic. I do not come from design, I come from the graphic arts and engraving ... This is probably why my research is above all aesthetic. To propose a new form, to give rise to an emotion and new sensations facing a "free" object that will find a place in an interior like a canvas on a large white wall ...

CHALLENGE:
The challenge of this project was light. It was necessary to build the whole before being able to verify if the object could resemble the mental image that I had made
