Nymphea & Echeveria

Arno Hoogland’s interactive lighting objects ‘Nymphea’ and ‘Echevaria’ were inspired by his own problems with concentration and establishing a daily rhythm. The two objects have been designed to make users aware of their behaviour; they respond to touch and motion, and they are able to learn from experience. But each object has its own personality: once their trust has been won, one will help the user concentrate, while the other has an activating effect. By following the user’s activities and responding to these, the objects help create a natural rhythm, making their presence in the living environment almost a natural one.
