timid / interactive light


The suspender lamp »timid« is a playful light concept. Its complete touchless handling is based on the combination of technical sensors and actuators.

The illuminant follows a gesture and outgrows the corpus as far as desired. Through this different phases variable light characters can be achieved: spotlight, mood light and general light.

The features of »timid« reveal intentional not until using the light. This advances to a playful usage of light.
