comments: this light is designed to sense the presence of people. it adjusts by opening like a flower blooming and increasing the light level as more people are gathered. when people are not present it closes, reduces the amount of light and goes into energy saving mode. amazing technically as well as aesthetically. the form is light, made of simple materials and well proportioned. originally from korea, joonsoo kim and jungyou choi met while at design school in the netherlands where they are currently based. their work reflects the unique combination of the design aesthetics from both of these two places.
