Lux Piñata is an excercise in creating a soft and warm lamp for soft and warm light. While conventional lamps are often made of metal and glass, Lux Piñata’s body is made of coated soft foam. It is soft to the touch and only lights up when it is touched and moved. It slowly fades once it can not feel the user’s presence, conserving the battery.
Being battery powered it is a perfect lamp for a night stand or an evening picknick outside.
Lux Piñata is currently being shown at Vitra Design Museum Gallery, in the exhibition Worker’s Delight that is dealing with bodily movement in everyday life.
