Lumisphère is an interactive lamp. Experiencing an object through light as matter.
CourseworkObject Experience, 2017
Lumisphère is an experimental, interactive lamp based on the idea of generating energy through shaking. During the work process the interaction changed from shaking to inflating and the inflating has then become even more simplified to the interaction of pulling and pushing.
The initial object was the children's toy «Sphere» to which we sewed fabric shapes. They corresponded to the basic shape of the plastic ball, which is made out of triangles and pentagons. Together the over 30 shapes result in a fabric cover which is attached to the sphere. By pulling the rope up and downwards the lamp grows and shrinks and according to its size the light dims or becomes brighter. Clap once to turn off the Lumisphère.
