illumíni is a wall lamp, consisting of many small led lights, that shows presence and creates contact between distant people. It works through an application that creates a network between the users and gives them the possibility to interact.
The intention of the project is to evoke a nocturnal landscape where the lights coming out of the windows transform the buildings’ façades into hints of life. The light shows that there is someone behind the darkness of the streets and makes the viewer feel less alone. It is a simple unconscious feeling that has a positive effect on the mood.
The idea behind Illumíni is to highlight the presence of people. The illumíni network is like a city with its inhabitants. Every single light belongs to a person. The aim is to create a union between people without forcing them to know each other or depend on each other. It is a way to stay connected and surrounded by people, regardless of distance. The lamp lets us know when someone is home by switching on one of the lights inside it. The more lights are on, the more people are home.
