Hair / Lighting


“HAIR” is a new type of exciting lighting system that gives people special experience. This design utilizes simple physical phenomenon called static electricity. Once the light is on, Van de graaff generator starts to charge the hair surrounding the light. Then, hair would pull each other and eventually form a sphere-like shape as a whole. This dynamic nature of the system would give user an experience that no other lighting systems would give.
