In the past centuries we gained enormous control over the light surrounding us; from flickering torches to digitally controlled lighting solutions. These new light sources combined with intelligent control architectures open new opportunities. We aim to design new interaction paradigms and research the influence of intelligent light environments in social situations.

An interdisciplinary team from the field of Industrial Design (ID), Electrical Engineering (EE) and Computer Science (CS), jointly develop prototypes through three cycles; incubation, nursery and adoption. From initial phases, ideas are prototyped and grow in complexity and detail to a phase where they are adopted in real life situations.
