Tangible Candlelight

client: DigiFab
partner: Schull + Schull

As a demonstration of their expansion in production capabilities, DigiFab wanted to display a company branded exhibition piece during the Dutch Design Week 2013. In close collaboration with DigiFab and Schull + Schull, an interactive dinner table for two was created.

The tabletop features a distinctive metal inlay that rises out of the table to form organic metal leaves with halogen lights at the end. The lights behave as candles, subtly flickering and dying out over time. By touching the metal inlay in the table, for instance when holding hands, the lights are fed with new energy, illuminating the dining experience.
