Title Domestic Lighting of the Future - How interactive lighting for the home can be innovated & utilized.
Author Asveld, Jip
Date 2018
English abstract
Innovative and interactive lighting has big opportunities to move from the classical switch to more tangible and embodied ways of interaction, types of interaction that have much more richness and expressivity to them. This will not be of any use if the output would still be just an on/off type of lamp; however, new mediums or output in the form of LED light provide much more flexibility in intensity, colour, multiple sources of light (that work together), etc. Therefore they need more rich ways of input than a switch can provide. This richness of and mapping between input and output should be designed in an adequate way, to create a pleasing and meaningful user experience. The knowledge contribution that is expected through this thesis will be specifically aimed at the area where lighting, aesthetics of interaction and tangible & embodied interaction meet. A framework will be developed that can help designers who want to design innovative and interactive lighting for the home environment in the future. The framework can assist with creating an aesthetic interactive experience with lighting in a more tangible or embodied way (than e.g. just pressing a button or rotating a dimmer). The framework will be exemplified by a lighting design prototype that shows how the framework can be used.
