ColorUp Lamp - choose your environment by Pega D&E (Taiwan)
ColorUp is a table lamp by pega D&E that can mimic the hues and shades of anything that surrounds you, giving you the ability to transform your living room into a lounge, a library, or a pizza joint.
The device’s primary material is silicone. Its elastic property makes it perfect for creating a tactile surface you can grasp between your fingertips and squeeze. By using the frequency detecting and transforming techniques, users are able to absorb hundreds colors and beam it through the transparent and luminous body.
Here were a number of obstacles which the design team had to overcome before the product was market ready. The balance between the thickness of the outer layer and the brightness of the technology was one of those obstacles: more silicone meant it needed a well-lit bulb, which, in turn, requires a bigger battery, resulting in larger dimensions overall.
The interactive user experience enhances the very basics of a light source. According to pega D&E: ‘We believe most people have thought about changing the colors of their walls or surroundings, but it was too troublesome and most of us just give up and forget about it. that is the user experience ‘colorup’ is changing. Start remembering the passion you have for colors, start remembering the times you wish you could just change all the colors in your room. Because now you can.’
