LDC has explored a table lamp aiming to create an informative yet user- friendly experience in restaurants as an example of hospitality projects. The aim is to replace purely functional alert disks by subtle changes in the ambience through colours in a luminaire family. The restaurant-goers will be informed in a calm way in relation to the following scenarios:
- When the food is ready: the luminaire turns red, announcing that the food will be served soon·
- Best time to eat the food before it gets cold: the electrochromic screens start gradually transforming to blue, according to the time set by the kitchen.
The 12 cm x 12 cm vertical electrochromic displays combine both blue and red inks and were produced by Ynvisible. The electronics were designed by the University of Lapland.
