a cordless luminaire

Actualizing a student project

During my master's program, our class had to develop a cordless luminaire with the same components.

Having
observed excessive decorations on the table in restaurants across different countries and influenced by the need for colours during the long winters in Scandinavia, I decided to combine illumination and decoration with a minimalistic solution.


Exhibited at the Stockholm Furniture Fair 2020 as part of the class project, it received interest that motivated me to develop it further and bring it to the market.

Here is the story behind it.

Excess decorations are not
the more the merrier

Design Goals

- Accessible space for décor

- Sufficient & glare-free light

- Relaxing water movement
- Compact size

Finding ideal LED height

Ensure sufficient light is spread around the table & the users.

NOT "The End"

This is where things get interesting.

Moving Ahead
with a focus on modular design

The positive response from the exhibition and the evergreen nature of combining lighting & decoration inspired me to pursue this project as a venture.

Additional Requirements

Exceptional lighting technology
Vibrant colours of decorations & food around should not get muted.

Easy to use
Setting up the lamp should be an enjoyable experience.

Long battery life
For a worry-free & reliable operation.
 

Made-to-last sustainably
Modular design for easy replacement, down to electronics.

Flicker
A well-disguised danger

Poorly utilized dimming methods cause ghosting that takes a toll on our brains to process and lead to migraine-like symptoms.

Colour Rendering
Unnatural appearances

Commonly used LEDs cannot render the natural vibrance of colours and affect the fresh appeal of food & decorations.

Scientific research

Design Guidelines

Minimalistic & elegant silhouette
After all, the decorations under the lamp are the primary focus.

 

Circular - economy friendly design 
Zero glued parts & easily recyclable material choices make it easy to disassemble and upgrade.

 

Quality illumination
Glare-free & flicker-free light with colour-accurate professional LEDs.

Disassembly

You thought it was the end?
Me too.

The frame was unstable because of the internal unevenness from hand-blown glass.

Hence, the perfect solution was found after redesigning the frame.

See the result.
