Reverse Sunclock Multifunctional Wall Lamp by ADD Architecture Studio

Home > Winners > #78933


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Reverse Sunclock

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Multifunctional Wall Lamp

INSPIRATION:
The inspiration to design this lamp emanates from the desire to match two inseparable concepts, that of time and light. The marriage of those into an object that resembles a clock yet exists as a wall lamp initially sprung from the observation of sun clocks. Shadow and light unite and produce the notion of time. In this case the game between light and shadow applied onto a reverse sun clock half fiberglass half brass gives birth to a hybrid product, a ying yang existence of time and light.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The uniqueness lies into the harmonious coexistence of a clock and a lamp in a statement of an object. As the time passes a discus gradually lights off in parts which correspond to the segmentation of a clock. Half translucent fiberglass, half golden like brise soleil the discus rotates corresponding to the different needs of direct and indirect light during the day while always indicating the time. A slimmer discus half mirror half brass behind the main one accentuates or diffuses the light.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The 6 segments of fiberglass of the upper half discus gradually light off from 9am till 3pm and then the discus rotates 180 degrees. The same process occurs from 4pm to 9pm and repeats itself every 6 hours. The rotation axis and motion rotors are found inside the slim base cutting the lamp in half. Light and shadow change according to time offering a spectacle to the observer. The rotation is set off through a hidden timer connected to two also hidden power adapters inside the lamp's back base.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in September 2018 in Athens and finished in February 2019 in Athens

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The discus consists of a brass wreath holding the fiberglass and the brass brise soleil semicircles. Two pieces of fiberglass 3mm thick are held apart by the wreath so as for six strips of LED tape to be placed between them on the wreath's 1cm internal surface. Another LED strip covered with plexiglass is placed behind the brass 3mm bars of the lower semicircle. The timer and adapters enclosed in the brass back base offer signal and power for the lighting on, off and rotation of the lamp.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Discus: 150mm radius/20mm thickness Base: 162,5 mm width/400mm length/8-24 mm height The circuit enabling the function consists of two adapters and a timer. The six strips of LED tape on the upper half as well as the strip on the lower side are controlled by PCB units placed under them. Each of the upper strips lights off per hour following the timer's signal which also sets off the rotation axis every six hours. Necessary wires travel through the slim base's hollow edges to the lower back base.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Our architectural background drives us to re-evaluate the core of forms and notions in order to give birth to new and exciting ideas like some of our influences: Le Corbusier, Mies Van Der Rohe, Rem Koolhaas. Our research follows our awarded with Silver A Design Award Reverse Pickup Table Lamp case study and aims to take it a step further through the transformation and re-interpretation of every day forgotten objects into elegant contemporary design products, like the Pickup or the Sun Clock.

CHALLENGE:
The greatest design challenge in that case was to find a subtle yet profound way to combine the concepts of time and light into a multi functional object with character and unique form. We also desired to create a formalistic and conceptual continuity with our previous awarded design exploring the concept of reverse-ness. Turning realities upside down instead of tossing them away fits into our mentality of looking in the past in order to create a consistent line from the past to the future.
