‘Imbalanced balance’ by M&T

We started researching majority of invisible materials such as lights or temperature, gas for starting this project. After continuous experiments and considerations for those materials, we created this light.


The shade is uplifted from the heat which is same method as balloon, and when the shade is uplifted, it touches the switch and the other light is turned on and the shade is uplifted. They work receptively.

How fast the shade uplifts and the each lights switches are depend on how people around them move.

This system is pretty analog but the way they interact will give people imbalanced comfort which a programmed device cannot.
