Energy Field (2015)
Nominated as a shortlist of Lexus Design Award 2016
In the near future, it is expected that electronic devices will be supplied with power from Wireless Power Transfer system (WPT) without needing to be connected to the outlets or batteries. Starting from a small area such as a desk, WPT fields will expand and eventually create space which is filled with energy. In this way, the energy exists like the air around us. In anticipation of this future, we would like to propose a new lighting system that visualizes WPT fields by utilizing LED charms. The charm that contains a small coil and a LED chip is shaped like a smooth pebble. Without any power sources inside, the charm glows when it is put in a WPT field.
