Léon, 2016 

Léon means to engage the user in a lighting experience, leaving behind traditional archetypes of home lighting and with this the physical switch. Employing two proximity sensors controlling hue and brightness, the user lifts and lowers their hands over these sensors to determine the lighting effect. As light is intangible, it is apt that the switch should be too. Through a more poetic interaction with light, I believe the user will find a renewed sensitivity to the lighting atmospheres they create.
