Making Fun Things


Architectural task light


Vode was known for making miles of customized architectural lighting, but occasionally we tried other things. ULO is a task lamp featuring dual proximity sensors for color-tuning and dimming. A suite of mounting options connect to a swiveling magnet joint, making it adaptable to a wide range of locations. I researched power and control possibilities, and built prototypes to explore interactions (different ways of sensing, dimming, and color tuning). We designed it around USB-C back when adapters were still hard to find.
