CUBE Lights

By combining a sensual material like wood, with advanced lighting and networking technology, I aimed to create an open-source digital mood light that begs for interaction on multiple levels. In designing a form for the lights, I wanted users to have the ability to either place the lights individually in various rooms around their house, or stack them in large arrays in a single location.

Rare-earth magnets installed inside of each wooden case facilitates stacking, and the satisfying ‘magnetic click’ makes it fun. High-powered lithium-polymer batteries, and high efficiency LEDs will keep the units charged for weeks, but when needed, a charging jack in the back will accept a standard iphone charger.
