The Sixth Sense floor lamp develops (or rather programs) intuition!
The new development of the team led by designer Alexey Danilin has already received several major design awards for 2022 (including Red Dot Awards). The Sixth Sense floor lamp is designed with the human body ergonomics in mind and offers the most intuitive use. But even if developed intuition is not your forte, this will not be a problem.
The design of the model is based on the theory of proprioception. She is almost two hundred years old. The bottom line is that a person navigates in space, using receptors on the skin and muscle memory – they are combined by the term “proprioreceptors”. Simply put: when some basic movements are brought to automatism, they can not be controlled. So, for example, we can navigate in the dark, seeing almost nothing.
When designing The Sixth Sense, the designers seem to have taken into account everything possible: from the shape of the leg, thanks to which the lamp can be placed anywhere and as close to the furniture as you like, to the special sensitivity of the switch so that you don’t have to fight with it, just touch it. The height and location of the shades are thought out in such a way that it is convenient to use the floor lamp both standing and sitting, both left-handed and right-handed.
And use intuitively – without even turning your head, just reaching out and flipping a switch. Even the “ringtone” of the click is thought out so that the sound is pleasant to the ear.
Design with a minimum of detail so as not to distract. The leg is made of metal with the effect of pebbled leather, pleasant to the touch. And the plafonds are made of frosted glass. The energy source is LEDs with a soft glow.
By the way, a certain gene, PIEZO2, is responsible for orientation in space in humans. If it is not there, then it is difficult to find your way in the literal sense. But the designers of The Sixth Sense say that even this is taken into account in their development.
