This year, in response to the high expectations of the organizer, Akari-Lisa Ishii and Motoko Ishii, Art Directors of the thematic exhibit, selected some exclusive lighting materials (ready-made or order-made light sources, luminous materials, artistic applications, control technologies and others) to demonstrate the «musts» for the targeted visitors and journalists, under the theme, “LOG OUT!”
In this official exhibit on lighting design for Maison & Objet 2018, we present a wide range of artistic expressions of light (from Japanese traditional craftsmanship to the most high-tech European products).
Our stand benefits from the cutting-edge lighting technologies of our partners offering a new proposition of lights to «log out» your spirit.
This is a sensorial voyage of lights, made of art installations for a real experience of diverse lighting expressions.
At first, visitors will discover the most recent lighting technologies such as the most advanced fixtures and high-tech control systems, to acquaint them with how much today’s lighting technologies are «log-in.» Then they will be invited into an immersive and hypnotic light-art installation where they can «log out» and relax.
So… why should we LOG OUT?
Because... being LOGGED IN has become today’s standard. Always being connected to the internet, social networks, home assistance, IoT and other online services brings uncountable benefits and convenience to our daily lives, but it is also alarming that this situation harms our mental serenity and physical relaxation.
Without ignoring the benefits, it has become the time to think of the next step: how to disconnect. Being LOGGED OUT will become a definite luxury in the coming days.
In the field of lighting design, “smart lighting,” with connected technologies and intelligent control systems, has developed considerably. Application of smart lighting Is worthwhile to facilitate our lives and save energy. Still, it is also essential to orient our luminous creations to express a more peaceful atmosphere that can help us LOG OUT.
