Prototype, 2012

'holo' is a small pendant lamp made out of aluminum by metal spinning and coated with a special paint, which changes color from turquoise to white when reaching 31 degrees.
The size and materiality as well as the shape of the lampshade follow the parameters of this technology. This reversible process asks for a middle dimensioned lamp, which inverts the negative aspect of heating up by giving it a necessity through the thermochromic paint.
Because of its heat conductance aluminum is an optimal material to work with. The round shape supports the color change without breaking the arising color gradient with edges. Applied on the lampshade the coating creates poetic moments when turning the light on and off.
