inMOOV Lamps by Studio Lieven

The unique feature of this inMOOV lamp from Studio Lieven is its ability to folds itself inside out. Through this movement of the lampshade it is possible to regulate intensity and direction of the light. The fully opened lamp creates a soft light directed to the ceiling. The folded lamp creates more focused and warm light that illuminates the space underneath it.

The inspiration for the inMOOV lamp comes from the movements in nature such as flowers opening or jellyfish swimming. Studio Lieven wanted to transfer this fascinating movement into a living space.

The lamp is able to move from a smaller fixture to a much larger, stretched out one due to the Invertible Disc folding and unfolding of itself. Hidden within are strips of LEDs that change in color temperature based on if the fixture is open (3500 Kelvin), forming a soft light illuminating the ceiling, or closed (2500 Kelvin), which creates a more focused, warm light pointing down. The fixture easily opens and closes up by hand.

The construction and mechanism are made out of metal or carbon, they hold the body and LEDs inside the body. The lamps are assembled by hand in Berlin.
