For his final project on his master’s degree, Ilja Huber examined the issue of lighting moods in living spaces. His idea was to design a light fixture that enables individually tailored lighting of space. His three-part light fixture Baschnja can be split into individual light sources and positioned freely in the room so that users can create precisely the lighting atmosphere that they want. Each light source can be operated independently. With the 360° rotation function in all light sources, the surrounding space can be illuminated with both direct and indirect light. When they are reassembled, the three battery-powered elements are charged by the main fixture.
What do you think is your product’s application?
The conceived of area of application is our living spaces.
When developing this product, what was your main starting point? The material, the shape or the function?
The focus was on function during development.
What is the story behind your product? Was there a task?
The individual design of the light atmosphere in our living spaces was the initial idea. My approach was to design a lamp that can be divided up into several lamps, in order to position the light sources individually and in new ways in the room.
What makes the Pure Talents Contest so interesting to you?
The Pure Talents Contest offers me the wonderful opportunity to present my project to a broad public and to find out how my idea and its realisation are being received.
