Major project:

CAN LIGHTING - Smart lighting for the bedroom


My final project is a smart lighting system for the bedroom that encourages the user to change the atmosphere to an evening setting with a single gesture, omitting the necessity of using several switches or a smart phone. Just the right amount of modern functionality is seamlessly integrated with the product to make a daily interaction in the home more convenient.

The system comprises a ceiling lamp, a wireless switch and a bedside lamp, which can be wall-mounted or table standing.
