Nocturne is an interactive light fixture, programmed to react to the lack of sunlight, brightening and opening gradually with the setting sun. The form of the piece and the
organic movement of the arms were inspired by bat wings and movements of jellyfish, in order to give a shy personality to the lamp. He is afraid of the sun.
The project, even if based in a simple concept, underwent through many small steps in order to work properly. Even if the aesthetics were an important component during the whole journey, the engineering took a driving role. Finally, we were able to have a complex movement driven by a single motor, a rigid but flexible surface as the cover of the structure, and a working Arduino system that would offer a seamless final experience.
