Arluna, is a lamp that hide the light by a “lid” that you can move just approaching a hand on the side of the lamp.

The concept of Arluna was born looking to the studies of the “first light designer” Poul Henningsen, who designed a new kind of illumination where the light has not to be seen directly from the User.
Our second inspiration is the masterpiece of Vico Magistretti, “Eclisse” lamp, characterized by a “lid” that hides the light source, but at the same time you can not touch it when the light is on because of its temperature.
Arluna is an ambient lamp with elements in common with this two ideas, approaching with nowadays technology.
It is composed by a fixed base that contains an engine and two gears that permit the motion of the upper section of the lamp, that includes a wood base connected to the lid.
This part rotates just approaching a hand on the side, thanks to two motion sensors connected to Arduino.
Thanks to this technology you can direct the light or the shadow wherever you wonder without touching the lamp, as if your hand has got a gravitational power.
