Orbit | 2019

Aimed at helping workaholics of all ages and ability, Orbit is an exciting new lamp system that utilizes variation in light color, temperature, and intensity to help stimulate productivity, relaxation, and greater overall well-being. To assist in this goal, a rounded, switch-free form that operates on a tilt-switch mechanism was designed. Simply give Orbit a gentle nudge, or pick it up and turn it over, to turn the lights on and off. This action is inviting, joyful, and accessible to our users who have limited motor control. Orbit’s 5 week development process allowed me to immerse in user research with a worldwide workaholic audience, research the results of tests and studies related to light therapy, and experiment with form creation through foam-lathing before utilizing 3D printing and laser cutting techniques to create the final prototype.
