Conceived by Italian industrial designer Stefano Filipuzzi, Lucio is a sustainable lighting solution that interacts with users to provide them emotional comfort. Awarded with a runner-up award at Sharp Design Contest – Design Light For Emotional Comfort, Lucio combines LED lighting with a robotic, mobile, mechanical platform.
A built-in microphone and an optical system respectively allow Lucio to recognize its user’s voice and locate him. Accordingly, it follows its user within the domestic space while illuminating his path through a diffused, colored and comfortable light. Lucio further flaunts an automatic dual mode status: Quiet and Playful. Moreover, it relies on anti-fall proximity sensors, an IR remote control and Bluetooth interface to communicate with tablets and smartphones.
According to Stefano, Lucio is a faithful light which, owing to aforementioned attributes, is capable enough of being the “best friend of man.”
