‘Products’ of nature can adjust to their changing surrounding so they can life and function in an optimal way. This quality appealed to me and was the starting point in my search for new ways to interact with, and control a product.
The result is the Vertico lamp. A slim and tall lamp which can be shaped by the user. The foot with blades and the lamp are two separate parts which only function when they are together. The lamp gets his energy from the blades and the blades are shaped by placing the lamp in between them. By moving the lamp and the clamp up or down you reshape the lamp and vary the amount of ‘open light’.
The foot and blades are made from acrylic or wood. The clamp and lamp are made from aluminum. The lamp has 4 LEDs, using 15V (power is 5W).
