Mi-480

Designed as a decorative light, the Mi-480 deals with the idea of a textured skin, creating layers of transparent, translucent and opaque patterns. The gradients of light and shade that result, give the surface a sense of visual depth which changes depending upon the viewing angle. 480 pieces of acrylic, varying in size are illuminated by a single light source, located in the centre. This further helps create the illusion of a richly textured skin. Carefully placed gaps in the skin allow for rays of light to escape through, creating their own patterns onto the surroundings.

Being

The inspiration came looking strains of a fir-tree that has been cut. The strain is made to clip through from the bottom upwards, taking 100 mm of thickness at the top. After are practiced cuts along the circumference of the strain, at random, of different dimensions so as to always have different effects of light. Being is a lamp made with the use of scrap wood. It is an object of desgin of "recovery".

Einstein

Einstein Bridge: Lighting Design Concept. The bridge serves as a link between two parts of a neighborhood in the north of Tel Aviv, close to the shore. Taking inspiration from the sea, the curves and height differences along the bridge are accentuated by linear lighting. The design also includes lighting sculptures of sea creatures, shadows in the form of anchors and whale tails, and colored light that brings the sea even closer to the users. This playful narrative is all the more fitting as the bridge is located in close proximity to a school.

the most innovative point of this switch design is to enable our users clearly identify each light is controlled by which different witches. Based on the traditional switch design standard, we figure out a small slot above the switch, which can place light label. The installation is simple and practical, we just need to insert the different printed label into the different slots. There is a small hole in the notch of the label plate, users can use smaller tools to eject the label paper.

Arsuf Panoramic

The goals of this project were to achieve a calming effect through lighting design, and emphasize the serenity of the seaside environment. The light projects outwards, pouring through the pattern of the building's outer skin. This differs from traditional outdoor lighting, as it was designed specifically to emphasize the special pattern of the building exterior. It was challenge to find an LED which resists UV exposure, the air's high salinity and weather corrosion, and whose light isn't made too harsh due to the increase in color temperature, as a result of its encapsulation

Free Touch

"Free touch" consists of two parts of the switch and the baseplate. The switch consists of a small wafer with a new type of human body pressure sensing technology. People only need to attach it to anything they think is reasonable, and then do some natural touch, and it can light lamp.There is a card slot on the baseplate and a solar panel on the back, and the battery is charged with solar energy. When the switch part needs to be charged, just need to put wafer into the card slot."Free touch" is a new type of wireless switch, it brings a new way to open.
