Zero Ossigeno lamps will turn on and off with a small wave of your hand. They do not have a physical switch thanks to a proximity sensor connected to a microprocessor that allows the lamp to be switched on and off by approaching the hand to the light source. The name in fact derives from the amount of oxygen that remains during the combustion of a flame when it is covered.
Two prototypes of this lamps are presented at the independent design Festival Operae 2015, are completely handmade by Susanna Pilia, designer and ceramist of Peralia brand and collaborator of our laboratory from the beginning.
For the realization of the electronic component of the project, we initially worked on a functional prototype, which could still respect the small size necessary for the project, then move on to a final circuit design ready for production.
