MAKO is always supportive of global innovation initiatives. We believe that great ideas are sourced from the collaboration of individuals who come together with different creative perspectives. Innovators have a strong drive to make the impossible possible, by introducing new technologies or making improvements to technologies that already exist. The founders of FLUXO have introduced an industrial product design for pendent lamps, making it anything but ordinary. The FLUXO is a smart lamp with distinctive features that can be controlled from a simple stroke on your smartphone.
The FLUXO team members have just ended their successful Kickstarter Campaign on January 11, 2016, which they started all the way from Vienna. Their smart lamp conveniently shifts the direction of light, depending on the control demands set by the user, through their smartphone. When you want to read, but don’t feel the need for too much light, FLUXO lets you adjust the lighting to your personal preferences. Since it is a pendent light, FLUXO gives user the option to choose between direct and indirect lighting which faces the ceiling. This causes fewer glares for individuals especially when they’re watching TV. To make this industrial product design more fun, the creators of FLUXO incorporated software that allows the lamp to change colors, eliminating the need for mood lights. All of these settings can be made through their easy to use control panel app that lets the user brush paint strokes of different colors in different directions. These commands are then projected through the light, and the more you paint, the brighter the light. The user doesn’t have to worry about what the light looks like when it will be projected because FLUXO gives real-time feedback as you place your pick. To make the experience more efficient for the user, the app stores these settings as “light scenes,” so you don’t lose your favorite settings.
FLUXO made the industrial product design very minimalistic, with white being the only color available. With its simple, compact design, this lamp is a more than functional product that can easily blend into any urban or traditional space. MAKO loves how innovation can be driven from so many different parts of the world. Innovation has the ability to build various avenues to achieve efficiency, and the team members of FLUXO have done a great job at delivering an industrial product design that does the same!
