Designed in collaboration with Tecno and Viabizzuno, sol-levante aims to be an interactive furniture dedicated to open offices, which can be configured as a lamp or as a wall table through a manual interaction.
Sol-levante is a shared tool, through which people interact with each other and carve out a small space where to share time; at the same time, it’s a wall ambient-lamp.

WALL LAMP
The wall lamp configuration is fixed on the wall, that works as an accessory ambient lighting given by the lamp placed in the center of sol-levante. The magnetic lamp is induction powered, in both positionings. It features a lampshade inclined by 10 ° which favors, when in table configuration, a source of dedicated lighting on the top.
The LED implemented presents a warm 6000K light and it is provided with two heatsinks and the induction system.

WALL TABLE
The magnetic lamp is the input that allows the configuration change. Once removed, the system unlocks and the table, which is fixed to the wall thanks to a track that also allows the sliding of the table, passes from vertical to horizontal position and vice versa through a tilting movement. Once the user performed this action, he can place again the magnetic lamp on the top of the track, positioned at backwards, which will wok as a dedicated light for the table thanks to its inclination.

INDUCTION
The lamp is powered by an induction and magnetic system that works both on the table and lamp configuration.

THE BINARY
By sliding the table, it passes from vertical to horizontal position and vice versa through a tilting movement, amortized by two piston.

THE LAMP
It features a lampshade inclined by 10 ° which favors, when in table configuration, a source of dedicated lighting on the top.

Sol-levante was a thesis project for my bachelor degree in Industrial Prouct Design.
