'rima LED curtain lamp' by dreipuls
affected by the idea of tangible interaction, the 'rima desk lamp' by german manufacturer dreipuls is designed to provide
individual and flexible lighting. instead of controlling the light by using a conventional on-off switch, the position and dimension
of areas illuminated can simply be defined by adjusting four rings stringed to the 90cm long fixture in a horizontal direction.
moving any one of the rings will turn LEDs on and off - it is as easy as drawing a curtain.
developed using technology based on LEDs connected in series which are controlled by a processor, optical sensors detect the position of
each ring and the processor then limits the power supply to the lights located between the two rings, so that they are the only ones to be
switched on. additional functionality allows the user to adjust the light color and intensity as well as light direction by rotating a second
ring which is mounted to the basic ring. using energy-saving LED technology, energy consumption does not exceed 12 watts even when
all bulbs are switched on.
