Interaction and Visual Design

Heartbit lamp

It's a series of "life," giving life to objects.

I designed this project wishing that I could give life to surroundings through technology. Sometimes I try to talk with objects and I wish the object would understand us.

Tree is the living creature exists near us. Also it exists in many different areas of life in the form of products. This is a tree lighting installation with breathing effect.


Temperature sensor activating, when a person hugs the tree the temperature goes on. By using variable resistance, high-intensity LED turns on smoothly. Fading technique of this lamp gives you the breathing effect.
