A new way to interact with lighting design objects by R L O N Studio.
The Berlin design team creates objects and installations characterized by minimal aesthetics, playful interactions, and poetic motions. their L1 and L3 lamps discover a completely different approach to lighting design with their shapes and the new way of user’s interaction.
R l o n’s L3 is a table lamp controlled by a metal sphere placed on magnetic fields on the surface. representing the energy source of the system, the smooth and reflecting sphere invites us to play with it and feel the gravity towards the center of the light ring.
This is an interactive light object, both illuminant and interface are protagonists of a geometric staging. The lamp tells one story of the journey to the center, of separation and oneness, of symmetry and tension.
L3 plays with gravitational fields. It is a bridge from the outside to the inside.
The L1 floor lamp — which is basically just a cane attached to the wall — can be turned on and off with just a single touch on any part of its surface. depending on the angle and orientation of the lamp, the range of illumination and shadow varies.
The form of the L1 floor lamp is guided by clear geometry and reduction to the essential – the lamp itself is no more than an accentuated stroke that leans lightly against the wall. Depending on the angle and orientation of the lamp, the range of illumination and shadow will vary. L1 is minimal down to the interaction – instead of using a switch, the lamp can be turned on and off with a single touch on any part of its surface, with a satisfying click sound.
All electronics are accommodated inside the lamp itself, reducing power supply to a minimum and integrating the cable into the sculptural appearance.
