Concept Statement: Killay is a lamp whose geometry and materials evoke balance and simplicity. A slim piece of oak into a dodecagon steel body. Light emerges magically. It stays off while the oaken arm remains horizontal. As you rotate the lamp, the light intensity increases until it reaches its climax, coinciding with the pole in a vertical position. The tension generated from the stillness, the perennial equilibrium and the magic of light transform it into an object of desire.
Project Specs: The intensity of the light is controlled by a microprocessor with an accelerometer that measures the angles. Both the driver and the first-rate OSRAM LED bulb have been exclusively designed to meet the conceptual, functional and kinetic needs of Killay.
