EVA Foster+Partners

The Lumina Eva is a tabletop indirect up-light that emerged from earlier design iterations of a dining table lamp for an architectural project. The idea was to create a floating cone of light that emanates a warm glow similar to candlelight.
The entire assembly sits within a glass tube with a round mechanised aluminium base housing a single LED.
At eye level the light source is invisible, and the reflector appears to float above, radiating a soft, warm glow. The lamp is also a tactile object – wrapped around the base is a grooved, free-moving wheel that works as the dimmer, which uses infrared sensors to achieve precise control over light levels.
