SHYLIGHT is a lamp hidden in a cocoon and based on the natrual process by which flowers attract and repel pollen-gathering bees. Whenever the lamp is switched on, it falls out of its ‘cocoon’, opens its petals and floats downward. When switched off, it closes again. Studio DRIFT have exploited highly mechanical electronic solutions in order to create a poetic and ‘living’ laminaire. Every lamp is prgrammable by its user and can be combined with additional Shylights to perform a dance of shifting, timing illumination.
