TL 1.

  • Esther Stronach

TL 1. is a wireless charging, portable, task light. Its design demonstrates intelligence in interaction design. I also looked closely at semiotics and their role within this design. This project explores the issues surrounding volume production. The composition focuses on the careful selection and combination of materials. TL 1. is a working prototype made from beech, aluminum, and frosted perspex, and it functions as both a task light and a lantern. Knobs on either side are used to control the head of the lamp; when facing down, light hits a reflective aluminum bottom, covering the electrical components, illuminating the atrium, creating an ambiance. The intensity of the light can be adjusted by a dimmable knob offset on the front of TL 1. For directional light, the head of the lamp can be lifted and positioned to illuminate the given area.
