Aesthetically clean and intellectually stimulating, the revolutionary lighting concept created by compMatter-TA, titled RE-LUXOED is what the designer describes as possessing of a diurnal mentality, ‘it assumes a charge cycle pose during the day, and a discharge cycle pose at night’. This, coupled with some sunlight- probably not so good for Scotland or Seattle- creates an ultra compact desk lamp which works completely ‘off the grid’. Below is the designer’s description of the light’s use.
1. During the day, stick the closed lamp to any window. Thin film solar sheets embedded in the silicone suction cups will charge an array of microbatteries. Boost converters allow voltage to be stepped up, or amplified, to power the OLED lighting elements.
2. At night, simply remove the fixture from the window and reattach it to any surface: a desk, the back of your computer, the wall.
3. Press anywhere on the OLED array and the light transforms into its discharge pose. An armature actuated by spring loaded and gas struts unfurls, while the boost converters are switched on and activate the light itself. An embedded photometric light sensor monitors the ambient light conditions, and adjusts the light output accordingly to preserve battery life, and provide the most balanced and pleasing light quality.
