DAE. Eindhoven, 2017
Appearance of the mirror-lamp is inspired by aesthetics of the cassette player ‘URAL’, designed in the USSR. The functionality however is a reflection of popular applications, such as Instagram, where you ‘swipe’ for desirable filter for an image.
Mirror-lamp, controlled with gestures, will become a central piece of the interior and create a mood in the space according to the owner’s preferences and wishes. Simply, turn it on, moving your hand up, and swipe right to select the colour and pattern.
