Leonardo 1482 Interactive Light by Maurice Dery and Jordan Dery

Home > Winners > #76102


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Leonardo 1482

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Interactive Light

INSPIRATION:
The Da Vinci collection is inspired by one question: If Leonardo, the great Renaissancian, were alive today, how would he incorporate 21st Century technology into his designs? This has been the inspiration and guide in creating this handcrafted light. The Leonardo 1482 poetically resembles a rising sun, borrowing heavily from Renaissance-era mechanics, and is appropriately named for the year Leonardo da Vinci began designing and developing his inventions.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Leonardo 1482 is like nothing ever seen. It reflects the Renaissance era, but uses modern led technology. The light uses machine gears, along with magnifiers that are used to intensify the light source, that are reflected onto mirrors. With a simple pull on the chain, eight gears move simultaneously to redirect the light reflection on the mirrors onto the wall or the floor. Using the latest in lighting, machining, and metalwork technology the light brings the Renaissance back to life.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The led lights are installed so that the light points directly to the magnifying glasses. The magnifying glasses reflect the lights onto the mirrors. By a simple pull on the chain, 8 wheels move simultaneously to move the mirrors. The mirrors then redirect the light from the wall to floor and back again.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project began in the fall of 2017. A lighting collection was designed for the Luxury Home and Design Show that occurred in June 2018. The theme of the show was the Italian Renaissance. This was the reason for the inspiration of the Da Vinci Collection.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The light began with sketches made on paper, which were then made into AutoCAD files. 3D images were made in Inventor. Using modern day machining techniques, the components for the light were made using aluminum and brass.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
628 mm diameter x 1524 mm high

TAGS:
lighting, lighting design, Da Vinci, Italian Renaissance, Interactive

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Honoring the Italian Renaissance required months of historical research, followed by extensive prototyping and development. The light poetically resembles a rising sun, borrowing from renaissance era mechanics. The light is like nothing ever seen. It reflects the old age, but uses modern technology. The same way Leonardo used magnifiers and mirrors to project candlelight, we’re projecting an energy efficient led light through a magnifier, onto a mirror, and then transferring it onto the wall or the floor. The methodology is identical. The technology five hundred years apart

CHALLENGE:
The gears we made for the light were like those from Leonardo's day. They are wheels with cogs. Unlike modern day gears that mesh properly, these had to be worked and reworked to achieve the proper mesh to prevent excessive back lash, or binding.
