Shadow Lighting

Shade is a tool that allows you to control and sculpt shadows. To define new shadows in the room, you manipulate light through touching and stroking the surface in different ways. Shade also has behavioral automation that detects the way you move and where you place yourself in the room. This automation adjusts the shadows based on your habits.

This concept had me scratching my head. “What the hell is the designer talking about!?!” After some thought, it’s as clear as day!  You can’t have shade or shadow without light so this product allows you to manipulate shadow which is the causality of light. Wait, did I just confuse you some more?  Just think of it this way. It’s a fancy touchscreen light that remembers how you like to have it set.
