japanese designer, kazuhiro yamanaka, presents his latest project – the flying drone lamp. the project has been conceived as a work that combines drone technology with traditional lighting, to create an object that can follow users’ movements around the home, illuminating spaces as and when it’s needed.

the stands for the table lamps are designed by yamanaka to function as launch-pads for the flying lighting object. located around the home, the positions and plan of the space must be programmed to the device prior to use. then, through the use of sensors to track a person’s movements, the lamp is capable of following users around a space, providing the appropriate light required.

 

 

the shape of the object can be varied in design and the launch-pads are not always necessary as the flying object is able to land without any base. the concept is also envisioned to be used in a space such as inside a space station. without gravity, the need for propellers is totally removed. in essence, the project employs a small drone and an LED light to reimagine how we brighten our homes.
