Dot

Studio Project 2017

Dot is a task lamp designed at a human scale using honest materials. Using raw aluminum extrude tubes, each piece comes together through a thrust bearing joint that allows four axis rotation. In our busy lives today, Dot sets out to bring a balance between work and leisure.

Exploration

We explored the balance between work and leisure through different hues, creating a modal use of light. In the early explorations, we used magnetic balls traveling through the copper pipe to trigger a reed switch. When the task lamp is lifted high above to illuminate work the cool temperature light would turn on. When the lamp is rested at the bottom the warm light would turn on to illuminate the room for leisure.
