simon schiessl and felix hardmood beck: 'eyelight dot me' at DMY berlin design festival 09

eyelight dot me by simon schiessl and felix hardmood beck

the ‘eyelight dot me’ by simon schiessl and felix hardwood beck is a parasitic lamp, a reactive light for your home with its own mind. in its bright light cone an animated searching eye appears, which scans for and tracks nearby persons and observes them.

the technical base is an array of high brightness LED’s which is controlled with precision.

the ‘eyelight’ dot me was on display as part of the DMY youngsters exhibition during the DMY berlin design festival 09.
