‘S1’ by Thibaut Sld is a one meter long interactive pendant light that is aware of human activity nearby.
An oblong ring composed of a polyurethane shell, a PMMA diffuser, a dimmable led strip and proximity sensors, two ceiling mounted winches control the elevation of each end.
The hanging power cable uses jack connectors.
“Aware of the human activity in its surroundings, S1 can adapt itself.” says the designer. “Its level can be raised to get a global lighting or lowered to concentrate the beam. Combining many units also allows to generate preprogrammed dynamic patterns.”
