Dimensions: H. 30 x ø 20 cm

Materials : birch ply, ash, steel, halogene bulb, detector for surrounding air, electro-magnet, electronic components

The Aérobie lamp is a hybrid that takes cues from the wind chime. But where the musical decoration is activated by invisible air currents, the dettector lamp draws attention to the absence of air movement: A stuffy room that needs to be aired.
It is made from three openwork-cut sheets of birch ply fixed to a round metal base studded with leds, which are linked via an electro-magnet to a CO2 detector. When air quality becomes critical, the leds start to vibrate and jingle. The sound signal modulates to the level of carbon dioxide in the room, signalling the need to let in fresh air.
Like a living organism, the lamp monitors the quality of the domestic environment in which it is installed and reacts to changes in it.
