Da Vinci Collection wins GOLD.
The Da Vinci collection is inspired by one question: If Leonardo, the great Renaissancian, were alive today, how would he incorporate 21st Century technology into his designs? This has been the inspiration and guide in creating this handcrafted light. The Leonardo 1482 poetically resembles a rising sun, borrowing heavily from Renaissance-era mechanics, and is appropriately named for the year Leonardo da Vinci began designing and developing his inventions.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Leonardo 1482 is like nothing ever seen. It reflects the Renaissance era, but uses modern led technology. The light uses machine gears, along with magnifiers that are used to intensify the light source, that are reflected onto mirrors. With a simple pull on the chain, eight gears move simultaneously to redirect the light reflection on the mirrors onto the wall or the floor. Using the latest in lighting, machining, and metalwork technology the light brings the Renaissance back to life.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The led lights are installed so that the light points directly to the magnifying glasses. The magnifying glasses reflect the lights onto the mirrors. By a simple pull on the chain, 8 wheels move simultaneously to move the mirrors. The mirrors then redirect the light from the wall to floor and back again.
