Do we understand what happens when we dim our lights? How can we include dimming as a part of the design? These are some of the questions that triggered the design of Exploded View, a series of lighting objects that incorporate move- ment as a key element of its design.
By moving the light-source away from, or closer to the lighting object, the intensity of the light can be adapted. After all, the sun never fades; it is the earth that moves closer and further away, causing the light to reflect, change colour, dim or die.
Eclipse (darken) In this edition, the light is like a jack in the box. When the light is covered, only a weak beam of light shines through. When the light source is moved downwards, the light becomes brighter.
Lunar (reflect) By means of a reflecting lampshade, the light is reflected. Depending on the position of the light bulb to the cover, the light is reflected at the top or bottom.
