Tubì is more than a chandelier: able to feel
the users, to understand its needs,to
analyze its context and to trasform
automatically, moving the enlightened body
to the operating surface (tables or desks)
improving the visual comfort.
Tubì is supplied by a light analyzing app:
the following application is used by the
users mobile placed on the operating area;
the smartphone interacts with the chandelier
and sends to Tubi' instructions on how
changing the configuration to improve the
visual comfort. You should just leave your
phone on the table and select the action
that you want to accomplish: throught
bluetooth on short ray, the signal is sent
to the chandelier and this approaches the
light point up to obtaining an optimal
lighting ( costantly monitored by the
mobile). The application also allows to
adjust the colour and the temperature of the
lights. So each user can configurate Tubì
and, when relieved buetooth, be welcomed
with a specific shape and colour. This makes
tuBI' an exceptional piece of furniture
which chages the room according to the
inhabitant. Not only a functional element
but also a sculptural and interactive
object.
All this is possible by a
mobile "SKELETON" system built by an
telescope aerial managed by an electrical
actuator, an elastic ELASTAM “LEATHER”
system, a 500% extensible fiber without
approaching the plastic phase, a “HEART”
composed by two enlighten sources, a
spotlight and a led strip, both RGB and
dimmerable, and a “BRAIN” composed by an
elettronic center which coordinates all the
other systems and connects them to all the
mobile devices. Apart to the comfort use, it
adds a energy saving, not only due to the
led choice, but mainly by the approach of
enlighten body to the operating area
obtaining an enlightening increase without
extra energetic waste.
