FOLIUM

The first intelligent light for the better life


-

Design Brief Design and lighting device that is highly intelligent to improve human’s living experience and convenience

-

Problem Defined Currently the light only provide the purposes of aesthetic decoration and illuminating the space. In this intelligentized era people seek more than the basic functions instead of turning light switches manually.

18


Product Design Folium

Forms matter

Currently, most of lighting design focuses on form and aesthetics. The function is not that much important as itself; instead, people are easily attractived by beauty objects. How can we improve this phenomenon?

Lack of functions

Smart home?

Lighting design can be design to place everywhere at home. However, people are lazy to turn on/off the swithes specially, is there any way we can make it become a more convenient object?

Most of the furnitures are still, silent and unconscious, but with time moves forward, deisgners have started to give these objects live. Can we make it even smarter than what we expect?

User Case Scenario By developing series of user scenario, I can define the problem more clearly. In this process I found that the major problem of people using daily light is, they have to approach to the swith everytime when need to turn on or turn off. Folium is specially deisgn for solve this problem with its intelligent sensor and adapting features.

Product Design Folium

He want to buy a high-end lgiht.

She is easily attracted by beautiful and interactive products.

He feels it’s too dark to find the switch when back home at night.

The light he bought is beautiful, but he found the brightness adjustment is not very useful.

This product ended up with seldomly using.

Gradually she found.... most of beautiful objects are lack of pratical functions, and vice versa.

She hope there is a design can find a balance between and outstanding from common products.

He always forgets to turn off the light.

He hates most of glows from light are not adjustable.
