See the Aura – Viktor Kölbig Has The Touch
Okay with a name like Viktor Kölbig, one could easily surmise that he is german. This industrial lighting designer brilliantly combines technology with plant life in the form of a vase with flowers. Forget the clicker, or the clapper, touch the plant and it turns on. Oh does that mean it is a “turn on? ” I know a bit too 70’s and really corny. Anyway, that is modern! Bridging the gap and going beyond plastic plants to the real thing. A module packed with sophisticated and yet invisible sensors that allows you to use any plant or flower as an interface to control LED lighting.
A brief touch of any part of the plant allows you to turn on the source, changing the colors of the illuminations. Built from of a milled aluminum case and a diffused water-proof scratch proof cover, a programmed micro controller is hidden in a separate small box to control the LED RGB light modules. So taking bathtubs with chromotherapy up a notch. I am all for it. Whatever flips your switch. Okay also 70’s. Can you see its ‘aura‘ ?
Have an infinitely modern day!
