With Lucas Ribeiro

This lamp project shows our point of view in regards of current society’s issues: resource depletion, sustainable conception, emergence of new technologies. ON/OF, Wireless lamp technology, seeks to convene these situations to make it a smart and independent object. This one can answer to our contemporary problems. The thinking led us to a global design divided in three parts: GENESIS/MATERIALITY/TECHNOLOGY.

GENESIS
Our thinking is on a daily object : a lamp. This study can be saw as a theorical and manifest production. We wants to make a sustainable lamp to stop the daily use of nuclear energy which is used especially for lamps.

MATERIALITY
The lamp uses aluminium and wood which are both recycled. This position, in one hand, lengthens the using period, in other hand, it limits energies used to creat materials. The aluminium industrial production uses standards that we integrate in our design in order to optimize it. The use of aluminium and wood give to the lamp a contemporary atmosphere. The aluminium also gives to the lamp a long sustainability and resistance since the mechanic properties of this material remain the same even when it is recycled.

TECHNOLOGIES
The smart use of the lamp it’s both in its design and materials but also in the technologies used. We really want to use new technologies to emphasize our contemporary position. Each use cycles, defined above, involves precise technologies.



ON/OFF, Wireless lamp technology tries to take a lead on the contemporary issues. The lamp is autonomous, by creating its own resources, and trendy by using both wood and aluminum. The action which users can have on it, it’s only functional: switch on / switch off, hence its name: ON/OFF.
