The ORBIT luminaire whereas aims to be an timeless piece of furniture and to reintroduce a conscious useage of lamps and light. It is environment-friendly manufactured and combines functions of a clock and a luminaire.

The interaction concept provides a special user experience: Switching between both modes is controlled by an distance sensor which can contactless be triggered by reaching into the ring.
